This classic, simple summer salad of tomatoes and mozzarella comes from the beautiful island of Capri. The juice from the ripe tomatoes and the whey from the cheese will seep out to create liquid around the salad - this is delicious soaked up with plenty of crusty bread. The cheese should be perfectly fresh and juicy, whether it is made from buffalo milk or not. The basil leaves must always be torn, and never cut with a knife or scissors, because this alters the flavour and blackens the leaves, which looks unattractive.
