You can add some fresh or dried oregano and a few drops of Filippo Berio basil flavoured extra virgin olive oil to this salad, if you want.

Dish history

This salad is probably one of the most famous and popular Italian dishes, with its ingredients - tomatoes, mozzarella and basil - creating the Italian flag on your plate! The recipe originates from the Campania region - with the Isle of Capri being one of its best loved locations - but it's enjoyed everywhere. This recipe features the delicious buffalo mozzarella, made 100% of domestic water buffalo whole milk. The perfect dish in summer, when tomatoes and basil are in season and therefore tastier, it will fill your tummy and refresh you.
