Caprese SaladServes 8
4 medium tomatoes
12 oz fresh mozzarella
Peel the cucumber and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Remove stems and slice the tomatoes and the mozzarella. Take the fresh leaves from the basil and add all those ingredients together in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Place on a platter in individual portions, stacked with the cucumber on the bottom, tomato, mozzarella and a basil leaf on top.
This is a light, tasty appetizer or side dish to add to any Italian or summertime dish. I love the fresh basil and the fresh vegetables. It doesn't get much better.
