“Monday Recipe – Caprese Salad”

Caprese Salad

I was so excited to pick up my tomato plants and basil this weekend. I only need to add my fresh mozzarella, balsamic vinegar and fresh cracked pepper and voila, an amazing appetizer for every-day meals or to impress your friends. So easy and so yummy!


1 pound fresh mozzarella (or mozzarella balls)

4 large heirloom tomatoes (or any tomatoes that you have on hand)

1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil, torn

Sea salt

Freshly cracked black pepper

Balsamic vinegar (I use the thicker Modena type)


Slice mozzarella and tomatoes 1/4 inch thick; arrange on serving platter. Sprinkle with fresh basil, salt, and pepper. Drizzle to taste with balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil if you like.
