Summertime and the livin's easy

Lunch today came from my very own garden

Insalata Caprese
  • Homegrown Tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh Mozzarella, thinly sliced
  • Large, Fresh-picked Basil, rinsed and patted dry
  • Minced Garlic
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Porcini Olive Oil,(This is purely optional, but gave this salad the extra "Ummm, Ummm!" factor)
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh cracked, Tri-colored Peppercorns
Arrange tomatoes on a plate, first. Top with Mozzarella and Basil. Sprinkle Garlic. Drizzle Olive Oil over everything. Finish off with Sea Salt and Pepper.

Buon Appetito!
