Caprese Salad

If you grow your own tomatoes and basil this summer, the only thing you should have to buy at the store is your fresh mozzarella. This is simple to make, delicious and makes an impressive salad or appetizer at parties.

  • Heirloom tomatoes (regular are fine, too)
  • Basil
  • 3 oz. sliced, fresh mozzarella (cut thin to get more slices)
  • 2 t olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Sea Salt (omit if you are watching sodium)
Simply slice your tomatoes, chop your basil and assemble on a plate. Sprinkle a little sea salt on each tomato to really bring out the flavor. Drizzle with your olive oil and balsamic vinegar and you are done!   6 WW points
