This easy Italian plate packs in the healthy fats but feels like a light lunch. A generous assortment of fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced prosciutto, green olives, and tomatoes are drizzled with olive oil then seasoned with salt and pepper. There’s no cooking necessary, and this can easily be packed for lunch away from home if you bring the seasoning and olive oil in a separate container.
Don’t forget to sprinkle a generous amount of salt and pepper across the top of the mozzarella cheese and tomatoes, because that really makes the meal. It’s also important to find a good quality extra virgin olive oil to get the best flavor possible. If you can’t find prosciutto, or it’s out of your price budget, then try substituting deli-sliced salami. If you’re looking for an even simpler lunch option then don’t forget to try our Caprese salad.
