Insalata Caprese from Asher in Australia

  • What's the recipe? Insalata Caprese
  • Who sent it? Asher in Australia
  • Where did the recipe come from? Asher didn't say
  • Why is it special? "The recipe I send you this evening is one I made 15 years ago as part of a meal I prepared for friends at a dinner party in Elizabeth Bay, Sydney. I had spontaneously invited a work-mate to join my friends that evening - little did I know that three years later he would become my husband. The insalata caprese has become a summer go-to recipe for me as it is so simple yet elegant. Most recently I made it for a work friend who is moving interstate. A dear girl I am sad to lose, however I have made plans to keep her close to my heart with letters I will write to her."
