Caprese, that simple yet classic Italian salad, is usually a combination of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. Caprese salad is quite possibly the most perfect summer combination. When fresh tomatoes are at their peak and basil is bountiful, combine it with fresh mozzarella for a truly refreshing antipasti experience. The traditional Caprese salad needs nothing more than salt, pepper, and olive oil to shine, but we took the combination for a spin in these pasta, sandwich, and grilled recipes. What was the result? Pure Caprese-inspired magic.
