Simple Summer Salad: Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil (Insalata Tricolore)

I don't even need to give you the recipe for this. But as I bundled this together on a plate yesterday, I decided I'd snap the beauty that is the Insalata Tricolore and post about it anyway.

It's simple. And tweak-able - as I've done below. But it's perfect by the plateful, with a glass of crisp white wine, or as a side to a bustling BBQ. Either way, you know you have to make it at least once before October arrives. It's the rules of sunshine.


  • Buffalo Mozzarella 
  • Beef Tomato
  • White Onion 
  • Fresh Basil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper ("Uhhh push it" - sorry.)


Easy. Slice the mozzarella, tomato and onion in thin slices, arrange as you see fit on a plate. Dress with fresh basil leaves - I grow mine near my sink (and no, I'm not a domestic goddess, it's super easy). Add a splash of balsamic vinegar to give a tangy sweetness and help to mellow the onions. A crack of pepper and a sprinkle of flakey salt and you are there.

I ate with a fork, sat in my sunlit conservatory, while nattering on the phone. And it was quite perfect.

The Annual Easter Family Music Video

Enjoy. We did.

(You may need to watch on a computer. It may say not available on phones or tablets but try anyway. Worked for me!)

Happy Easter From Us

He was a damn sight harder to photograph than last year (oh how cute!), but he's my lovely boy. And I can't wait to spend four whole days with him.

I hope that, whatever you do this Easter break, you are happy and loved.

And you have chocolate to share with your toy sheep too.
