Here I go again playing around with classical dishes which I am sure will horrify some. Of course a classic Caprese salad is a wonderful thing the cream milky mozzarella cheese with sweet ripe tomatoes and almost metallic basil is a match made in heaven, all I have done is added a little spinach, balsamic and popcorn… “Whoooahhhh, hold on” I hear you shout you added popcorn? My answer would be “yup”! Popcorn has a long association with a trip to the movies and I have played with an Indian variation on popcorn here on Krumpli. This idea I got whilst visiting one of many food festivals this summer and a restaurant had put together a rabbit rillettes and rolled it in popcorn and served along side some more popcorn tossed with pomegranate molasses and it was a genius way of adding texture and a new flavour sensation. Well I think it works wonderfully in this Caprese salad that in the main comes straight from our garden, with the tomatoes, basil and spinach all costing us nothing but a little bit of hard work, which makes it even more awesome!
Kinda Caprese Salad
The classic flavours of a Caprese salad get all adventurous in this recipe to add a bit of body and substance to what is usually a light lunch dish or starter.
