Marinated Tomato Carpaccio and Mozzarella

Tomato and mozzarella is a combination that just cannot do any wrong. It is something that pleases a majority of the crowd and it’s simplicity just makes it a great dinner-party dish. Want to take it up a notch? Then I have you covered!  This tomato carpaccio is just as simple as the original, but that dressing gives it that much more flavor! 


I could eat it this for lunch and dinner everyday!

This recipe serves 2-4.


3 large tomatoes 

125g fresh mozzarella, room temperature

For the dressing

2 tablespoons good quality EV olive oil 

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

Salt, to taste


Parsley or basil


Black pepper

Good quality EV olive oil

Crusty bread


  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing and season with salt. Set aside.
  1. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Place the tomato on its side; using a sharp knife slice and discard the top. Continue slicing the tomato very thin (they should almost be see through). Repeat these steps with the remaining tomatoes. Place the slices on a large serving plate.
  1. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes and allow to marinate for 5 minutes. Tear the mozzarella and place on top of the tomatoes. Generously season with black pepper and salt and drizzle some olive oil over the mozzarella. Sprinkle a bit of parsley or basil and serve with crusty bread to dip in that delicious dressing. Enjoy!
