Phase 1

Preparing this caprese with eggplant and raw ham is quick and easy. First, cut the aubergine into slices about half a centimeter thick. In a pan, heat three tablespoons of oil, brown the aubergines on both sides and cook for 5 minutes, remove and let cool.

Phase 2

In a serving dish, arrange the salad on the bottom and season with salt and extra virgin olive oil. Compose the caprese by partially overlapping a slice of tomato, two slices of aubergine, a slice of mozzarella and a slice of ham, creating two rows.

Phase 3

Proceed alternating in this way all the ingredients, until they are exhausted. Complete by seasoning with a drizzle of oil, black pepper and a few leaves of fresh basil. The caprese with eggplant and raw ham is ready. Serve it immediately or keep it in the fridge until ready to bring it to the table.
