Satisfaction guaranteed with just a simple salad like this. Bocconcini, Tomato and Basil Salad is a simple Italian style salad simply prepared with Bocconcini, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil dressed in a balsamic vinaigrette.
If you love Caprese then you will definitely love this too, it’s the mini version of Caprese, made with Bocconcini, cherry tomatoes and basil. In reality both salads are similar but with the use of smaller tomatoes it gives it a richer tomato experience becuase of its diminutive size the flavour can be a little more concentrated. Its bright, its sweet, they have a thin, snappy peel and a very juicy centre. For this recipe I used a sweeter variety which is well balanced with the balsamic vinaigrette dressing I used.
Perfect as a summer no-fuss side dish, its light, its vibrant, refreshing and most of all its delicious.
