Yes, this recipe is simple. And it is something that I have never made before. Oh all the lost time.
A good friend gave us some tomatoes from her garden. I already had a bunch of basil from my brother’s garden so it was time for the Caprese creation.
2 Beauty Tomatoes, sliced (Beauty is a Noun here not an adjective. It’s an Heirloom variety).
Fresh Sliced Mozzarella, sliced
Olive Oil, to drizzle
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Stack sliced Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Basil Leaves together. Drizzle with Olive Oil. Salt & Pepper to taste.
To make this extra special, get a loaf of Italian Round Bread. Slice it up, drizzle with Olive Oil and broil for 3 minutes. Place the Caprese on top and enjoy. It reminded me of Panzanella: Tuscan Bread Salad.
This was meant to be an appetizer; but we made it a meal for dinner one evening, and a lunch two days later. What a fresh end to summer.
