So this has been a busy week for me so I am getting my post out late 😉
Friends in town celebrating a birthday. My birthday. A big one 😉
Sooo, tonight I made caprese salad, as my friend Kim begged me to make it for her. She flies home tomorrow and wanted something light and yummy for dinner tonight..
I used fresh tomatoes and a block of mozzarella cheese. You can use small tomatoes, large tomatoes, heirloom, any kind.
Slice the tomatoes thin. I use a tomato knife. Slice the cheese just as thin. Layer in a pretty platter with sides (or the balsamic will run all over the place!)
Pour balsamic vinegar over the entire salad. Use a lot so the cheese soaks it in. I have also used white balsamic as it’s amazing as well.
Then cut up fresh basil – I usually roll up the large basil leaves and chop finely into ribbons. All the fresh basil I have left right now is small tiny basil so I used a herb scissors and just chopped it up fairly small.
And yes it was AMAZING!!!!!!!!
