I like Caprese Salad but its something I rarely order when I go to eat. Mainly because I rarely order a salad but I also feel some restaurants put out a bland dish of tomatoes and mozzarella, sprinkle some salt and ask for 7 bucks. So when I first made a Caprese Salad I decided to add a small twist. In advance I cook a clove of garlic (chopped) in olive oil for about two minutes. Let the olive oil cool then add your chopped basil and parmesan. Let everybody bathe in the olive oil for a few hours then pour over your salad when ready to serve. You don’t have to put all the garlic on the salad as your olive oil will be infused with the taste of garlic. There are many other things you can do like add some olives or balsamic vinegar, be creative and enjoy.
