I put Caprese Salad on my Summer To Do List because I always loved the simple, contrasting ingredients. Summer tomatoes + soft milky mozzarella fior di latte + green fragrant basil. It looked easy but I’d never made it before.
Since I just made mozzarella fior di latte from scratch, Caprese seemed to be the perfect way to enjoy it.
The gist of it:
- Cut the mozzarella and ripe truss tomatoes into thick slices.
- Alternate slices on a platter.
- Tuck fresh whole basil leaves here and there.
- Finish off with a drizzle of good quality extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and black pepper.
- Dig in with forks
Check back tomorrow to see what I made with the rest of the mozzarella.
