Kate Winslow and Guy Ambrosino’s Winter Caprese Salad
The colors may be all snowy whites and evergreens, but we would happily dig into this salad any day of the year.
Thinly slice 1 small sweet onion and toss with 1 teaspoon champagne or white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Tear 8 ounces fresh mozzarella into bite-size pieces. Gently toss the mozzarella with the onion mixture, then transfer to a platter. Pit 1/3 cup green olives, such as Castelvetrano or Picholine, and tear into pieces, scattering them over the cheese as you work. Top with a handful of fresh parsleyand 2 tablespoons chopped roasted hazelnuts. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and serve with crusty bread.
