Is there anything much better than fresh tomatoes from your garden or the Farmer’s Market? This summer I’ve been getting the most delicious tomatoes and am constantly building my meals around ways to incorporate them. Here’s my easy Caprese Salad – I’m giving you the ingredients and a photo, just build the amount that you want for this evening’s meal and enjoy!
- fresh, sliced tomatoes
- fresh mozzarella, sliced
- fresh basil – either tear or chiffonade the leaves
- good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- sea salt (or other finishing salt)
Assemble the tomatoes, then mozzarella and repeat. Sprinkle the basil over the top, drizzle olive oil over the platter, drizzle pesto and then finish with a bit of salt to taste. It’s just that easy and such a refreshing side salad or meat-less entree.
