You CAN Win Friends with Salad!

Unless you are much into cooking and learning about foods, your idea of a salad is probably lettuce and ranch dressing. Boooorring!

On the other hand, maybe you like to go out to eat and try a variety of specialty dinner salads. Not so boring. Yummy, but lots of ingredients (and sometimes pricey ingredients).

Simple solutions are often the best kind.

Insalata Caprese

Enter the Insalata Caprese.

Insalata Caprese is a delicious salad composed of vine ripened or Roma tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Mmmmm…insalata caprese….

So here’s what you do:

Take two Roma tomatoes and slice them into rounds (1/4″ thick). Slice the fresh mozzarella (NOT the yellow string cheese kind) the same way and lay them on top of the tomato rounds. Tear up the fresh basil leaves by hand and sprinkle generously over the tomato and mozzarella. Drizzle generously with extra virgin olive oil. Add coarse salt and pepper to taste.
