Calabrese Salad

Although very basic - slices of tomato and boccocini, sprinkling of basil leaves, then drizzled with a balsamic dressing this salad is appealing as a side dish or just on it's own.

The freshness of this very easy salad is perfect. Do not dress it too early nor overdress it. It needs to be kept quite simple and the flavour will speak for itself.
