15 Minute Easy Summer Side

in, Cooking

I love cooking. Baking isn’t really my favorite, but cooking is easy and increasingly therapeutic. Lee and I cook probably 95% of meals at home and the summertime is one of my favorite times of the year to pull out new recipes or revamp old ones.

This dish is a classic, you truly can’t do much to improve the Caprese Salad. It’s simple, fresh, fast and doesn’t involve turning on the oven.

What You’ll Need

  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • Fresh mozzarella ball
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


How To Make

  • Wash your tomatoes and basil
  • Chop everything into thick slices and layer on a tray
  • Slide the basil leaves between the layers
  • Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic
  • Top with sea salt and pepper
  • Serve with crackers or a baguette


Voila! Easy, 15 minute side or appetizer. No cooking involved.
