Caprese Salad

In Summer gives whole bunch of fresh vegetables, fruits and its upto us to use it. It gives potful of basil too. So why not to use it in daily dishes and feed the hungry tummy. We been to one Italian restaurant and we ordered caprese salad, and my son loved it. He didn't remembered the name of it but he knows it has only 3 ingredients or say Italy's flag color. So one day he demanded (yes demanded) that before dinner could you please make appetizer of Italy's flag. I think about for a second and light bulb. I said ok but you have to finish the dish , he said I will. So luckily I had fresh mozzarella in fridge that time and have to use it so made this with 3 simple but when its combine a flavorful salad. You can use cherry tomatoes and put it this 3 on toothpick and it's a perfect party appetizer. But since summer gives nice big roma tomatoes I used this way.


2 big juicy roma tomatoes
1 lb. fresh mozzarella cheese
As needed fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper as per taste
Little EVOO and balsamic vinegar to drizzle.


Cut the tomatoes in nice thick slices.
Cut the cheese same way too.
Wash and keep aside basil leaves.
At the time of serving, put tomatoes first, then cheese and then basil. Put the toothpick in middle so its easy for little hands to eat it.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on it and drizzle EVOO and balsamic vinegar on top.
Enjoy the bounty of summer
