How to Make Insalata Tricolore
Guess what? Insalata Tricolore is in no way linked with goat cheese (Capra in Italian!) It relates to a most delicious tomato and mozzarella salad invented by a chef from the Island of Capri. Interesting, no!?
Just as with numerous incredible Italian culinary discoveries, like pasta and pizza, the origin of this dish is not accurately known. But since it is loaded with mozzarella, tomato and basil, it is unquestionably one of the delicacies of the twentieth century.
With increased tourism, the Tricolore salad stopped to be a Capri formula and turned into a universal dish, a Mediterranean dream.
This dish tasted it even better when the typical mozzarella began to be replaced with bufala mozzarella, a dairy item of the mill of Campania.
