There is nothing like the taste of a fresh tomato off the vine. Caprese is an all around favorite and this recipe puts fresh tomatoes and basil in the spotlight!
2 medium size Roma Tomatoes
6 Sprigs fresh Basil
Quality Cheese; any medium full bodied cheese works well. Here I have used a chive Havarti
Slice your tomatoes about 1/4 inch . Too thin and your Caprese will become watered down from the juice of the tomato and salt combination. Alternating slices of your tomato, basil and cheese: place on a plate. Drizzle with Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar- then sprinkle with salt. Serve a la carte or with a toasted baguette. This recipe also pairs well as the top to an Arugula salad.
