Variations

  • I used parsley with this dish but basil is common in a Caprese salad.
  • Prosciutto or ham can be used instead to add more protein to the dish.
  • Cherry tomatoes cut in half and mixing everything together instead of layering the tomatoes is another option.

Ways to Serve

The Crispy Salami Caprese Salad Recipe can be served as a side dish or an appetizer. I sometime will have this salad with a nice roasted chicken for dinner.

Tip

Can be made ahead of time just don’t pour the olive oil and vinegar until serving. I prefer to use grind black pepper and Himalayan salt to sprinkle on top of the salad before serving.
