Sometimes Simple is best

The classic Caprese Salad from the Island of Capri
This wonderful Caprese salad is easy to assemble and tastes amazing. Simply combine sliced yellow, green and red heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese. Alternate the slices and sprinkle with fresh basil and oregano. Drizzle with evoo and fresh ground pepper. Although the traditional recipe does not call for it, I add vinegar to mine. The key is in using the very best tomatoes - not as easy to find this time of year but definitely available and wonderful olive oil. You can find the ingredients at Whole Foods as well as local farmers markets.
