[Recipe] Classic Caprese Salad with Bocconcini

Caprese salad is one of my favourite salads ever and it is one of those food which is timeless and a crowd pleaser. Personally, I reckon it is simplicity at its best and I love the fact that it wasn’t shy in terms of flavour, colour and aroma (thanks to the sweet scented basil!).

When punnets of tomato medley were on sale not too long ago, I know right away how I can put these colourful baby tomatoes into good use. I would go as far as to say that making caprese salad is the best way of savouring good quality tomatoes. The naturally sweet and juicy tomatoes coupled with pillowy soft mozzarella, basil, fruity olive oil and a subtle tang from the balsamic vinegar. These were all the wonderful flavours which took me to the salad heaven!
