Caprese Salad

Honestly I am usually not a huge raw tomato fan. When summer hits it’s a different story, I am ready for a delicious Caprese Salad. Maybe it has something to do with the big chuck of mozzarella cheese that is involved? Give me anything with cheese and it’s good to me 🙂 Caprese Salads are a great summer side with minimal ingredients. I often volunteer to help “cook” dinner if David grills and I make the Caprese. It’s a win win for me, less work and deliciousness.

Caprese Salad

2 Servings

1 large tomato

1/2 ball of fresh mozzerlla

2 large or 4 small basil leaves

2 T olive oil

2 T balsamic vinegar

salt & pepper

Slice the tomato into 2 large slices. Slice the mozzarella ball in half and cut into 2 pieces (save the other half for another meal). There is often a little end piece that I cut off and snag to enjoy. Layer the basil, then the tomato slice, followed by the mozzarella slice.
