Caprese Heirloom Salad


In the shops at the moment there is the most fantastic selection of exotic tomatoes. The classic Caprese Salad may be spiced up by using fresh, simple ingredients, giving it a modern twist. Richard likes to use Buffalo mozzarella cheese, as this makes for a rustic look. This is a really delicious, simple starter that we love to make.

Serves 2


  • 1 x yellow tomato, sliced
  • 1 x green tomato, sliced
  • 1 x red tomato, sliced
  • 1 ball buffalo mozzarella cheese, torn into pieces Two sprigs fresh basil
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper


  1.  Choose pretty serving plates. Layer the exotic tomatoes, starting with a slice of yellow tomato.
  2. Top this with a piece of mozzarella cheese.
  3.  Next, place a slice of green tomato, followed again by mozzarella, and lastly a slice of red tomato on top of the pile. Your stack should sit firmly in place.
  4. Top with a sprig of fresh basil.
  5. Drizzle over a little olive oil, and season according to taste.
