This dish, from chef Mathieu Perez of Paris's Aux Deux Amis, is a take on the classic Italian mozzarella-tomato-basil Caprese salad. It depends on young, very fresh zucchini and summer squash. To prepare the recipe like Perez does at the restaurant, grate the olives finely with a Microplane grater instead of pureeing them. More Cheese Dishes
