Tomato, basil, mozzarella. Such a classic Italian combination of flavors – and this dish really highlights all three of them!
Find the recipe below – or check out my video tutorial!
Using a serrated knife, cut a beefsteak tomato into thin slices. Slice a ball of mozzarella into the same number of slices as the tomato. On a baking sheet lined with foil or a silicone mat, place two slices of tomato. Then add a slice of mozzarella and a large fresh basil leaf.
Keep layering, finishing with mozzarella. Grind some black pepper over the top.
Place under a preheated broiler for 4-5 minutes or until the mozzarella starts to melt. Use a slotted spatula/turner to transfer the stacks to a serving plate.
Quickly whisk together a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil, then drizzle it over the top. Add extra fresh basil leaves and serve.Warm Caprese Stack - an Italian #lowcarb appetizer Click To Tweet
