Caprese Salad

I make so many dishes like this that I don’t even consider a recipe but it’s occurred to me lately that it’s shockingly difficult to find basics like this on the internet. The key here and with so many great dishes is the ingredients. I only make this when I can get great tomatoes, high quality mozzarella, and basil straight out of my garden. This is also delicious with burrata.

The beauty of a staple like this is that you can make as much or as little as you want. This plate of caprese is one 8 oz ball of mozzarella and two large tomatoes. I had plenty left over for lunch the next day.
