How to Make Caprese Salad, Barb's
- Slice the tomatoes and put onto your salad plate. Top with whole leaves of basil, and a slice of mozzarella on top. Mix the lemon juice and olive oil evenly, so it is half of each, and 'dress' the salad. If desired, grind some fresh black pepper on top.
- We serve these on individual salad plates, but you could easily make a large salad and serve family style if you want!
- Note: Barb gets the brown tomatoes from Trader Joes because she says she can't find nicely flavored red tomatoes in NC. I absolutely love the brown tomatoes!
Note: I just did a search for brown tomatoes, and they are apparently also known as KUMATO tomatoes, and it says Kroger carries them...
