When my friend Clint visited me here in Lebanon, we had lunch at a local Italian restaurant called Olio. They served us a Caprese Salad with Buffalo Mozzarella, served in such a beautiful way, that it looked like a flower.
Since I ate that salad, I had the wish to reproduce the shape, since it was creative and very beautiful to look at.
I have gotten down to do the deed, about a week ago (I know, I know I am late to post it, but I have been very busy).
Although, for my version I used baby mozzarella instead of buffalo mozzarella, which was perfect since my basil leaves were on the smaller side. Without further ado, here is my Flower Caprese…
I also chose a smaller tomato to go with the proportions of my basil and baby mozzarella.
