One of my favorite things about The Goat Cheese Making Class is the people I meet….And, I meet a lot of foodies, chefs and closet cooks. Many of them talk about Caprese Salad. Once I found out what it was, I began salivating, cursing the fact that I’d have to wait for summer and my own tomatoes and basil, before I could actually eat it.
Well, impatience…and my mom’s birthday…won out. My City Girl Sister and I made mom an out-of-this-world birthday dinner, and this was the appetizer.
Although delicious, I am still salivating awaiting my summer harvest!!!
It’s simple to make…
1 Just slice some tomatoes
2. Put a basil leaf or half a leaf on top of each tomato
3. Put a slice of fresh mozzarella on top of the basil (I used fresh goat mozzarella that I had just made)
4. Drizzle with olive oil
5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Try to leave some for your guests. At least 1 or 2. I mean, that’s only polite, you know.
