When Heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil are in season, you can't beat the simple and classic Caprese Salad. The classic is sliced fresh tomatoes, layered with sliced fresh Mozzarella and fresh basil. A drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a pinch of sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Today, I used Heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil and fresh Mozzarella and stacked them. A pinch of sea salt and fresh pepper, then a drizzle of basil oil (from a recent post) and reduced balsamic vinegar, very little vinegar is needed as it provides another sweetness to the already sweet, ripe tomatoes.
