Ingredients Portobello Caprese  nnCaprese is an Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and green basil, seasoned with salt and olive oil. This represents the Italy flag. Our Caprese salad takes a little twist that is perfect for meatless Mondays, main dish, side dish, or appetizer. We enjoyed these treats with our Super Bowl party.
