With tomatoes at their ripest, it’s the perfect time of year to make a simple, beautiful salad.
Caprese is just thick slices of tomatoes and fresh mozzarella with fresh basil leaves. Layer these ingredients on a platter, sprinkle with salt & pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. If you want to get a little fancier, try:
- Using a variety of different colored heirloom tomatoes, so the salad is multi-colored.
- Mixing a few dollops of pesto in with your olive oil, then pour the pesto oil over your salad as a dressing.
- Using a mixture of green & purple basil leaves for an even more colorful salad (check for purple basil at your farmer’s market or Asian food market).
