Caprese Salad

Resident Teen recently bought herself a GOOD camera and has offered to be my food photographer. I’m hoping by adding pictures appetites will be stirred up and you’ll feel more inclined to make a dish! Her first picture is featured today.
I’m going to add pictures to the old posts as soon as we get going with making the old recipes and taking pictures. Stay tuned!

Caprese salad with basil.

  • 4 vine ripened tomatoes
    10-12 basil leaves cut in half
    1 ball fresh mozzarella
    3tbs extra virgin olive oil
    1 tbs balsamic vinegar
    (optional) 2 tbs pine nuts toasted
  • Cut tomatoes and mozzarella in slices
    Layer in a circle on the plate as follows:
    tomato, basil leave,cheese, tomato, basil leave,cheese
    Repeat until you run out of slices.
    sprinkle olive oil over plate.
    if you are serving it right away sprinkle vinegar and pine nuts over cheese and tomato


    Happy June day, Happy Wednesday!
