Caprese Salad

Stanislava Dimitrova
How it's made: 

This Friday, my regular walk to the market was marked by the white and red colors of the martenitsa. Martenitsa is a small piece of red and white woven yarn symbolizing a wish for good health. It's part of a pegan tradition, popular on the Balkans, in which people exchange martenitsa as a gift on the first day of March and wear them to welcome spring. Bewithched by the good mood and pre-holiday spirit, I brought home a pound of cherry tomatoes and a handfull of fragrant fresh basil, and made a good old Caprese salad.

Wash and slice the cherry tomatoes in half. Mix them with the mozzarella cheese. Season with olive oil and salt. The secret of the perfect Caprese salad is the Balsamic glaze. Just a few drops of its sweetness will bring out the flavor of the tomatoes and spice up the mozzarella. Last but not least, add plenty of fresh basil and your home made Caprese salad is ready. Enjoy!

Shopping list: 
1 pound cherry tomatoes
1-2 bags of mozzarella cheese
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Balsamic glaze
handful of fresh basil
