Caprese Salad


  • 4 large Tomatoes hot house -- fresh, juicy
  • 4 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 package Fresh mozzarella cheese packed in water
  • 16 leaves Basil sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste


Slice tomatoes about one quarter inch thick and arrange on a plate.
Slice thin discs of mozzarella cheese and place on each tomato. Top with a sprig of basil.
Mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Pour over tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve

Notes & Tips:
To make this super easy, buy grape or cherry tomatoes and cut them up, toss with 1 inch chunks of fresh mozzarella, add dressing on top and mix together and refrigerate for one hour. Also, this tastes great on a bed of spinach.
