CapreseSalad

Ripe Tomatoes + Fresh Basil = A Taste Treat


This past week, I got to enjoy what I think is one of the best ways to experience the goodness of home garden - the Caprese Salad.

In case you do not know what a Caprese Salad is, it is the wonderful combination of sliced ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, sliced fresh mozzarella cheese and olive oil. Not only is it a taste delight, but it is so easy to prepare. Add a piece of fresh bread for good measure and you have a delicious, healthy quick summer meal. What more could you ask for?

The recipe is very simple:

  • sliced ripe tomatoes are layered with
  • sliced fresh mozzarella cheese and
  • fresh basil leaves, whole or thinly sliced
  • drizzle all this with extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to your taste

Many variations of this simple recipe can be found on the internet or in cookbooks.

Try one, you will love it!
