Caprese salad and Rump steak
Caprese salad is one of the single most easy to prepare salads to accompany any summer dish. Using simple, high quality ingredients that should be celebrated is central to our cooking ethos. Like our meat, we think seasonal vegetables speak for themselves and don’t need to be over-done to get the most out of them.
Caprese salad or ‘salad of Capri’ is simple to prepare summer salad that only has four ingredients. It’s fresh, refreshing and light and the perfect accompaniment for your summer BBQ.
Grilled Rump Steak and Caprese salad
Rump Steak This large piece of steak will easily feed two people well, but could stretch to four if you increase the salad size.
On a hot grill, cook the steak for 5-10 minutes on one side, turning over and cooking for another 5 minutes. Rest the steak for about 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
15-20 cherry tomatoes, we grabbed a packet of mixed heirloom toms from roughly cut the grocer because their colours were amazing and the difference in their sizes, but any tomatoes you can get your hands on will work fine
Bunch of basil, torn Again, we grabbed a bunch from the grocer, you’ll need around 15-20 leaves, torn or whole
Cheese 5-6 pieces, sliced To match the size of our cherry tomatoes we got bocconcini instead – like mini mozzarella
Olive oil A good quality olive oil is definitely worth it for the taste alone. We drizzled about a tablespoon over the top of the salad once assembled.
Salt and pepper To season
