Tasty Tuesday: Caprese Salad

After 2 days of unseasonably hot weather I was in the mood for a nice cool salad today. The first thing I thought of was a Caprese Salad. I love fresh tomatoes and I love fresh herbs, so Caprese Salads are one of my favorites. The recipe below is the standard Caprese recipe but the pictures are outstanding! I borrowed this from Pam, who writes the blog For the Love of Cooking. It is a wonderful blog and she generously allows others to repost her recipes on their own blogs. The recipe as well as the pics are hers. So a big thanks to Pam! Just click on the link above to enjoy her talents! ~Marla

For the Love of Cooking: Caprese Salad

This is a perfect salad for a hot day (or any day for that matter). Simple, easy and full of flavor. I love the flavors of mozzarella, basil and tomatoes together and topping them with a really good balsamic vinegar makes it an irresistible salad.

  • Organic or home grown beefsteak or Roma tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Layer tomatoes, cheese and basil then drizzle balsamic vinegar and finish off with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Enjoy!
