Caprice salad makes a great starter, a side dish for a BBQ or party, lunch or it can form the base of a more substantial meal. Irish tomatoes are at their best right now. They only contain approx. 4g of carbohydrate per 100g, so are well worth adding to lots of meals this Summer. A mozzarella and tomato salad takes only minutes to make and can be left in the center of the table and everyone can help themselves. Or make a smaller portion for a packed lunch and add green salad and some chopped peppers and olives.

Steps

Done

Wash and dry the tomatoes.

2

Optional: If using the pine nuts you can toast them in a dry pan (for approx 30 seconds) for extra colour and flavour, but they are fine untoasted too.

3
Done

Layer the cheese and tomato on a serving plate.

Add the pine nuts if using.

4
