Fresh. That’s how we describe the caprese salad, and making it with fresh ingredients is key! Tomatoes on  the vine, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, sea salt, crushed peppercorns, a nice extra virgin olive oil, and (ok, this is obviously not fresh) some aged balsamic vinegar. That’s it. Super simple and delicious! Eating this just feels like summer. I know it’s not (since it’s snowing outside as I write this), but it will get you in the mood for a change of season. Enjoy!

    • Ha, fresh from the garden would be ideal. But, these are courtesy of Wegmans. I think that’s why I mentioned tomatoes on the vine…..they are just so much better in the off season.

  1. Yumm! My favorite meal ever!

    I just stumbled on your blog and now I have to subscribe. Your food photos are just what I like. And of course, your photos are spectacular. I can’t wait to try your mojito recipe, because the mojitos I’ve made so far have been awful.
