Caprese salad

20120208-112525.jpg

Last night we had spaghetti with Bolognese sauce, Caprese Salad, Green Beans, and Garlic Bread. I must say it was super yummy, filling and very elegant. ( well I guess if you can have elegant with 3 kids at the table lol)

The Caprese salad must be one of the easiest and gorgeous looking salads I have made. You need 4 ingredients mozzarella, tomato, basil, and lite extra virgin olive oil. Slice the mozzarella (or buy presliced mozzarella) about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Slice your large tomato or tomatoes to the same thickness. Slice, cut, or tear basil. Arrange tomato and mozzarella on a plate alternating the pieces. When the pieces are arranged in a circle sprinkle the basil and the olive oil on to the pieces. That’s it you are done!

*note do not add the basil and olive oil until ready to serve.
