Imagine freshly picked tomatoes, sliced and perfectly seasoned, layered crisp basil leaves and rich, creamy mozzarella. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the trio and you’ve got it, the perfect snack. That’s what you’re looking at: the Caprese, improved.
This Caprese salad is exactly that. The Salt Block brings together the smooth richness of the mozzarella with the acidity of tomatoes and earthy, herbaceousness of the basil for a harmonious afternoon snack. The olive oil and balsamic add just the right amount of complexity to complement. After all, who doesn’t love an elevated classic?
