Simple Lunch: {Caprese Salad}

Simple is key during the summertime. There are things to do, places to be, sun to be had during these lovely summer days. And in a season of ripe tomatoes straight off the vine and fresh basil leaves that smell like sunshine, caprese salad hits the spot.

  • Cherry, grape or whole large tomatoes, any color, any variety
  • Fresh {key!} mozzarella cheese, pearls or sliced
  • Fresh basil, chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Note: Caprese can be made as a small-bite salad in a bowl or sliced arranged in layers on a plate. However you choose to make it, match the tomato and mozzarella bites or slices to be the same shape and size.
