I love caprese salad so much my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I love to eat it as a side to my main dish, as an appetizer or even a mid-day snack! It's truly a magical and perfect combo of flavors, textures and freshness. For this caprese, I mixed it up by adding capers, onions and balsamic to create a pretty presentation and outstanding flavor!
On a large, shallow platter, layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella.
Top with thinly sliced onion, basil and capers.
Drizzle the salad with olive oil, balsamic and season with salt and pepper to taste. (I often don't even use salt and pepper)
