This dish is a combination of two of the most famous Italian recipes, 'Cotoletta alla Milanese' (Milan's well-known breaded cutlet) and 'Insalata Caprese' (Caprese salad, typical from the south of Italy). With this recipe north meets south, creating a real delight for your taste buds! Whilst 'Cotoletta' is traditionally served with lemon wedges, modern versions of this dish see it arranged on plates together with tomato slices and rocket: here we go with the idea of adding delicious provolone cheese and nuts to give it a new, original taste, while still keeping it 100% Italian. Enjoy it!
