Basic Caprese Salad


I just had to follow up Amelia’s awesome storing basil experiment post with this very quick, basic and popular salad that is super refreshing, yet satisfing in the summertime.

Caprese Salad

1 large tomato, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 pound buffalo mozzarella, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1/2 cup of basil sliced into ribbons
2-3 tablespoons balsamic vinegrette
Fresh cracked black pepper

On a plate or decorative platter, first lay down the slices of cheese, top with slices of tomato, garnish with basil, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with pepper.  Easy, right?

Eat Well!
