Caprese--in a Japanese way

Our family loves italian,most especially when it comes to caprese. I tried my caprese doing it in a japanese style. I changed basil into shiso,a japanese herb for a touch of japanese. Anyway, here's the recipe-- it is best match for wine and good appetizer,too!

Japanese Style Salad Recipe

shiso (japanese herb) - 12 pcs.
fresh ham - 1 pack
fresh tomato - 1 pc,large
mozzarella cheese - 1 pack
salt and ground black pepper

How to make the caprese:
1: cut the fresh tomato, mozzarella cheese and shiso into one bite size.
2: spread the fresh ham, put the shiso,tomato and mozzarella cheese alternately over the ham and fold. repeat until done.
3: arrange platter, top in salt and ground black pepper.

To make it more italian:
You can omit shiso and change it to basil leaves, and change fresh ham into anchovy fillet or without both. Alternate fresh tomato, mozzarella cheese, anchovy fillet and basil leaves into platter.Drizzle with olive oil,top in with salt and ground black pepper.

See, it's easy! Enjoy with wine! \(^0^)/
