16 January 2014 A Basic Caprese Salad

2014-01-12-foodie-015The middle of winter is not necessarily when you expect to find tomatoes, is it?  These, though not vine ripened, did actually grow on a farm in Massachusetts. They are Ugly, an apt name for this variety, and they were delicious!

Basic Caprese Salad

  • Ripe tomatoes, washed and sliced at about 1/4 inch
  • Fresh mozarella cheese, sliced
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and pepper2014-01-12-foodie-066

Method

  • Wash and slice the tomatoes and arrange on a serving dish
  • Slice the cheese into rounds, put one round (or 1/2 a round, if the fresh mozarella is quite large) on each tomato slice
  • Top with a freshly washed and dried basil leaf
  • Drizzle with olive oil
  • Sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Serve at room temperature or cold. Enjoy!
