Caprese Salad

| 0
Caprese salad is a simple Italian salad made out of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and sweet basil, seasoned with salt, pepper and olive oil or balsamic vinaigrette. It is usually arranged on a plate and served as a starter course in restaurants. Here at the Farmstand we like to pair it with a fresh baguette and call it a meal, anytime of day. Serves 2-4 Ready in 10 minutes
INGREDIENTS:
 1-2 vine-ripe tomatoes, ¼ -inch thick slices
 ½ to 1 lb fresh mozzarella, ¼-inch thick slices
 8-12 leaves fresh basil
 Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
 Coarse salt & pepper
DIRECTIONS:
1

Layer alternating slices of tomato and mozzarella, adding a bit of basil as you go. You may either leave the basil leaves whole and tuck between slices or slice into ribbons and sprinkle all over the salad.

2

Drizzle the salad with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.

3

If your tomatoes could use a little pep, balsamic vinegar is a nice alternative drizzled topping.

4

Enjoy!!
