This traditional Italian salad – notice how the green, white and red colours of this salad are, patriotically, the same as the colours of the Italian national flag – is so simple to put together. But it looks fab and tastes even better, with the sensational flavours of the Mediterranean. Just the thing to enjoy with a pal on a hot summer’s day…

  • 125g pkt of mozzarella pearls, drained
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves

Top Tip

If you put a finger over the top of the bottles of balsamic vinegar and olive oil you can “dot the plate” to give it that professional look!
