Caprese salad is a very simple Italian summer salad comprised of mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil. Season it with extra virgin olive oil and salt to bring out the tangy flavors of the tomatoes and the earthy taste of the basil and mozzarella. Your grab-and-go jar will display the colors of the Italian flag: red, green and white.
