I got home from hiking with an unexplainable craving for cheese. With a nice block of mozzarella in the fridge and some tomatoes on hand, I decided to make this salad. It's a lot like an Insalata Caprese, just arranged a little differently.
Ingredients: 1 tomato, mozzarella (amount may vary depending on how much you like cheese), fresh basil, drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
I share this simple salad recipe mainly as an excuse to show off our basil plant. It has really flourished since being repotted and moved outside. It started out as a tiny little thing that I purchased from the herb section of City'Super, and now it's practically a basil bush!
