Plump vine ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, a little basil leaves along with a little splash of olive oil & balsamic vinegar…. Perfect ingredients for a perfect salad! This tomato caprese salad is classic as far as flavors go – but jazzed up in the presentation. Try serving this up at your next cookout or get together, and see how many ‘wows’ you get!
Take your tomato & cut the top off, where the stem would be at. Then, cut 4-5 slices into it – about ¼″ apart from each other. Insert a slice of fresh mozzarella & a basil leaf into each slot. Splash on a little olive oil & balsamic vinegar. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
