The easiest and arguably most famous salad in Italy, I cannot even justify writing instructions for this recipe. Instead I will just list the ingredients: mozzarella (has to be fresh and preferably di bufala), tomatoes, basil leaves, salt, and your absolute best olive oil. If you're reading this from Edmonton, my favorite olive oil right now is called Sammarelli Extra Virgin Olive Oil which you can find at the Italian Center Shops. It's $9 for 250mL but so worth it. Sometimes I lick the plate just so it doesn't go to waste. As David Rocco says, this is a "perfect example of a dish that lets the ingredients do all the talking". Talk less, eat more. Cheers.
