This salad is called Caprese in Italy, because it was first prepared on Capri island. It is prepared with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. All this creates refined, light, sweetish taste and aroma. It can be eaten as both appetizer and main dish, especially for those wanting to lose weight and at the same time not to be hungry.
Tomatoes with cheese are an excellent combination, because carotene contained in tomatoes can be better digested together with fats. Include this salad to your ration, as tomatoes contain substances preventing cancer. If you want to prepare a light dietary dinner for your friends or relatives, there’s nothing like Caprese salad.
