Our Best Caprese Salad recipe is a very simple little salad that will make any dinner a little more special. Of course, we are a lover of basil here on the ranch so any excuse we can use to have a little basil works for us. It’s super easy since there are only three Caprese salad ingredients other than the seasonings.
