Holmes Beach Delight: The Feast’s Caprese Salad and Its Italian Roots

The Origins of Caprese Salad

Caprese salad, also known as insalata caprese, is an Italian antipasto that celebrates simplicity and freshness. It features four key ingredients: sliced fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes, sweet basil, salt, and olive oil. Arranged on a plate, it mirrors the colors of the Italian flag: green, white, and red. Despite its name, Caprese salad doesn’t hail from the island of Capri; instead, it originates from the Campania region in Italy. Legend has it that it was created either as an homage to the Italian flag or to appease the palates of vacationing royalty and important politicos in the 20th century.

Buffalo Mozzarella: A Creamy Delight

Buffalo mozzarella, also known as mozzarella di bufala, is a luscious cheese made from the milk of Italian Mediterranean water buffalo. Its distinct tangy flavor and creamy texture elevate any dish. Unlike regular mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella intensifies the flavor of Caprese salad, making it a true delight for cheese enthusiasts.
