ah, summer salads
This is the first recipe/food item I have ever posted on my blog...I'm so excited. This is Josh's favorite salad ever. It is easy to make and it looks so delectable, doesn't it?!
Start with some perfectly ripened summer tomatoes. Slice them to a thickness of your preference.
Then, slice mozzarella cheese to a similar thickness. Buffalo mozzarella is the best variety for this salad.
Chop some fresh basil and place it atop the cheese.
Ground salt and black pepper over everything.
Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the entire salad just before serving. Mmmm.
Josh likes balsamic vinegarette on the salad, but most recipes I have researched say that the perfect insalata caprese has no vinegar on it of any kind. So, it is up to you. But Annie Gunn's serves their insalata caprese with balsamic vinegarette, for whatever that's worth.
