C is for Caprese...
Dat good enough for me! Here's a summer salad even Cookie Monster could love. Or at least a Ninja Turtle if he couldn't wait for the pizza to finish cooking. It's also quick, cool, and delicious (and oh so festive) for your 4th of July picnics and bbqs today (if you are in the US and 7 or so hours behind me, as well you ought to be!).
Caprese Salad (serves 2, increase as necessary)
1 red vine ripe tomato
1 large ball of fresh mozarella (bufala if you desire)
Slice tomatoes, slice cheese. Layer in alternating lines. Garnish with pesto, drizzle with virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, all, some or none of the above. Et voila! Ready to eat with a nice fresh bread or even on it's own. Buon appetito.
