In this Italian dish, the mozzarella cheese is the real star! Caprese is a type of Italian salad in which sautéed veggies are tossed with grated or sliced mozzarella cheese.

The crunch of onions, the pungency of garlic, the succulence of zucchini and the juiciness of tomatoes are all accentuated by the addition of the grated cheese.

Basil gives the Zucchini, Tomato and Mozzarella Caprese a nice herby touch while pepper gives a mild spiciness, which makes the caprese all the more enjoyable.
