While there are many gelato desserts that incorporate sweet fruit flavors, this one from Eataly Chicago favors herbs and vegetables instead.
Eataly Chicago's own Gelato Bar now boasts a savory Caprese gelato cup, which is designed to remind of the taste of the classic Italian salad. Traditionally, the three-piece salad is made with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, and this new gelato dessert has red, green and white colors to match. Eataly chefs collaborated on the creation of this unique "galati salad" cup by combining Basil Gelato with Tomato Sorbetto and Fior di Latte Gelato, which is a sweet milk gelato that mimics cheese.
To top off the dessert as a salad-inspired creation, Eataly Chicago garnishes the three scoops with salt, black pepper and a shot of extra virgin olive oil.
