Why make your salad complicated when, instead, you can highlight local flavor with only 5 ingredients?
I make my easy caprese on the reg; the salad's taste is as spot-on as its vivid colors.
Makes 4 servings
4 ounces (approx.) fresh mozzarella
1 pint cherry tomatoes, yellow and red
1 handful fresh basil, torn
Olive oil (the good stuff)
Salt and pepper
1. Slice tomatoes in half and mozzarella into 1-inch cubes. Load your bowls with tomato, mozzarella and basil. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top. Sprinkle some sea salt and pepper.
And there you have it. At my house, we soak ciabatta in the balsamic and oil at the bottom of our bowls.
