Today I went to the Hollywood Farmers market to get some ingredients for my classes this week. The tomatoes I got are so perfect, I might end up eating them myself! Cherries have just appeared, and they are delicious too, so I bought a pint to see if I can make a nice tart later this week. Here is a recipe for a basic caprese salad to use some of those amazing tomatoes
2 medium, ripe tomatoes, red or gold or both, in thick slices
6 oz. fresh mozarella cheese. Sliced thick
12 leaves basil, torn up.
1 oz. best quality olive oil
A sprinkle of the best quality salt you have
Layer the tomatoes, cheese and basil on a platter, drizzle with oil and salt. Enjoy!
