Insalata Caprese

Caprese Salad

Hey Everyone! So much has happened since I posted last. The biggest change was a move from the East Coast to the West Coast! We are based in San Diego now, and summer is in full bloom at the local markets!

I’m enjoying many, many heirloom tomatoes at the moment. I just cannot get enough of them. I’ve been adding them to everything. They are perfection.

Today’s lunch put these beauties in a starring roll. With quality ingredients, you don’t have to fuss much to make a fabulous meal. Here I’ve taken a ripe, juicy heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella, fragrant basil and extra virgin olive oil and combined them to create an absolutely heavenly, light summer lunch.

Simply layer the sliced tomatoes and mozzarella attractively. Season with sea salt and pepper. Drizzle with the oil. Top with chopped basil. Serve and enjoy!

This would be a lovely addition to a summer dinner party. So much flavor and goodness with little effort!
