I’ve always enjoyed the Italian caprese because of the way acidic tomatoes play against the sweet-and-sour flavors of aged balsamic and the fruity notes of olive oil. Then there’s the beautiful contrast in texture between the soft and creamy mozzarella and the firmer slices of tomatoes. I’ve reinvented this classic by adding a dressing of tamarind and jaggery.
