Last week, when I was on vacation, we went to Whole Foods to get some supplies and what did we see (cue the angel choir) – Heirloom Tomatoes! …..and right next to the tomatoes, in a great marketing ploy, fresh mozzarella! So what was on the menu that night? Yep – Caprese Salad.
Caprese Salad is one of those effortless dishes that really shows off the quality of its ingredients. Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Basil leaves and olive oil – that’s it – hardly a recipe. Just slice the tomatoes and cheese, layer with basil leaves and drizzle with olive oil. Couldn’t be easier or more delicious. Keep this idea bookmarked when your tomatoes are ready for picking!
