Simple to make, perfect for any occasion, the caprese salad is one of the main dishes that we love to enjoy during the summer.
Besides being fresh and tasty, the Caprese recipe also hides a very particular origin.
There is a historical evidence that would place the beginning of the history of Caprese around the 1920s, when the recipe for the dish appeared in the menu of the Quisisana Hotel in Capri.
n fact, that Caprese was part of a futurist dinner, organized for the founder of this historical-cultural movement, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti.
To amaze the poet, who more than once had thrown himself against the traditional kitchen, he gave life to this particular salad that, in addition to representing Italy in the colors and ingredients, was opposed to the most classic pasta dish.
