Recipes - Caprese Salad

Two words - Italian Summer.  Okay, so I've never been to Italy but every time I eat this salad it's easy to imagine I'm sitting in a quaint cafe, over looking the Mediterranean with the sun beating down, listening to people speak a language I don't understand.  This simple Italian salad is absolutely delicious and requires the best quality ingredients.

1 punnet (200g) grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
150g bambini (baby) bocconcini, halved
6 large basil leaves, roughly torn
olive oil
freshly ground salt and pepper
prosciutto and sourdough to serve, if desired

Step 1 - Put tomato, bocconcini and basil in a bowl.  Season well with salt and pepper and hit with a good whack of olive oil.  Fold gently to combine.
Step 2 - Serve with thinly sliced prosciutto and thick slices of sourdough, if using.
