This simple dish should come under the heading that "simple and fresh are best." If you can't get to Campania in Italy, close your eyes and pretend you are there, relaxing after visiting the Blue Grotto in Capri, while eating this tasty, easy salad.

Authentic Insalata Caprese uses the fresh basil leaves & extra-virgin olive oil. Around the Chesapeake Bay area, you're more likely to find the Italian spices & balsamic vinegar. Both are delicious so enjoy researching which version you & your family love most. =^..^=
