Classic Caprese Salad

The classic caprese salad is a summer staple for me.  Farm-fresh tomatoes and basil from my own backyard make this dish an absolute delight.  It is such a simple salad to throw together on a busy night.  You can slice everything ahead of time to make assembly a breeze.  This salad can compliment most meals and is one I hope you will make throughout the summer season!

tomatoes, sliced
whole milk mozzarella in water, sliced
individual large fresh basil leaves
olive oil


  1. Start with a tomato round, then layer a slice of mozzarella.  Top with a basil leaf.
  2. Continue layering in that order until desired amount.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.
