Insalata Caprese (salad in the style of Capri) is a simple salad from the Italian region of Campania, made of sliced fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, seasoned with salt, and olive oil. In Italy, unlike most salads, it is usually served as an antipasto (starter), not a contorno (side dish)

- 1 large package of cherry tomatoes
- 8-10 sticks of mozzarella string cheese or 1 container pearl sized buffalo mozzarella
