Cooking Tips

By itself, this salad is deliciously fresh; however, you may want to consider adding more food items for a salad platter for a company dinner. Including the beans, place one whole Burrata or fresh Mozzarella cheese drizzled with olive oil, salt, pepper and chili flakes. Toss together ¼ cup pitted and sliced Kalamata olives with 1 tablespoon drained capers and place beside cheese. Serve with crusty bread.
