Caprese Salad Recipe

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

We have 2 sweet 100 cherry tomato plants that are overflowing with little balls of yumminess. But we can't eat enough to keep up. So I decided over the weekend to make use of them and make a caprese salad. I found this recipe from eatingwell.com. Omg it's delicious! And so nutritious! And super simple.

Caprese Salad


* 2 medium red tomatoes, cut into wedges
* 2 medium yellow tomatoes, cut into wedges
* 3/4 cup diced fresh mozzarella cheese
* 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
* 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* Freshly ground pepper, to taste


1. Gently toss tomatoes, mozzarella, parsley, basil and salt together in a large bowl. Season with pepper.
