Caprese salad is said to have originated in the region of Italy that includes the Isle of Capri, but the only thing that matters about it nowadays is that the tomatoes are ripe, the basil is fresh, and the mozzarella is good. In fact, if you can get fresh mozzarella from an Italian market, and you’ve got a decent olive oil, the tomatoes and such, this will be one of the easiest dishes to put together that you’ll find here on Food Republic. 

Serve it up on a platter at a backyard barbecue or before a refreshing summer pasta dish and you’ve got the makings of a perfectly satisfying meal.
