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.
Successfully making mozzarella fior di latte the day before, I cut the mozzarella into thick slices and alternated thick slices of ripe truss tomatoes on a platter. Tucking whole basil leaves here and there finishing off with a drizzle of good quality olive oil, balsamic vinegar and plenty of salt and pepper. Dig in with forks! So easy that I’m kind of glad that I made the mozzarella cheese from scratch.
Check back tomorrow to see what I made with the rest of the mozzarella.
