We are eating healthy and light lately. On our last trip to Costco, I got some fresh mozarella to go with our fresh tomatoes and Sheryl, our neighbor, has given us some more too.
Viv loved the caprese salad the other day so tonight we made some more using our own beefsteak tomato and basil. It went very well with the roasted chicken.
Am letting the tomatoes ripen in the vine. I picked them when they got very red but still firm. Gosh, they are so sweet! So great that everything is so cool to eat, just perfect for the hot temperature of today.
The salad is so simple and easy to make. Am so inspired to plant some heirloom tomatoes next year, a green tomato, pink, purple and yellow. Won’t that look great in a bowl of salad? It would be so colorful!
That big platter of salad came from about 60% of the large tomato in the photo. It was really huge, so sweet – better than any fruit and just a hint of acidity.
