Description

In original, authentic Italian Caprese salad you do not use eggplant, but I just love to grill eggplants. It tastes so delicious in this recipe. Also, if I have seasonal fresh green leaves I just add them as well, like arugula, spinach or something else. It is a tasty, simple and sophisticated recipe which you can make for actually any occasion. It would be great for a party or if you want to enjoy something fresh and creamy.

Ingredients

  • 1  Eggplant
  • 3  Ripe Tomatoes, Sliced
  • 1 pound Fresh Mozzarella, Sliced
  • 20 leaves Fresh Basil
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil For Drizzling
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

Slice eggplant and sprinkle some salt on them—you will see how eggplant will release water. Dry it with a paper towel, drizzle some extra virgin olive oil and put it on a grill for 5 minutes. Let it cool.

Slice tomatoes and mozzarella in even slices.

Layer slices of tomatoes, grilled eggplant and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a shallow plate. Drizzle with olive oil and season with some salt and pepper, to taste.
