Caprese salad is usually served as an appetizer, and sometimes as a main dish. It is a traditional italian recipe; the name of this cold dish comes from the island of Capri. It is prepared with tomatoes of the variety called fiascone originating in the Sorrento peninsula and mozzarella cut into slices, seasoned with oil, salt and basil. If you like it, you can add oregano. More rarely, it is served as a sort of salad with tomato and mozzarella cubes.
