    CAPRESE SALAD: Re-designed - - Everyone loves a caprese salad! What’s not to like – a little tomato, fresh mozzarella, a few basil leaves, some olive oil and balsamic vinegar – perfect ingredients all stacked up into one salad. But what if you don’t want to stack them up? Try freshening up your presentation with this idea: Take a whole tomato and cut slices into it (about 1/4″ thick) without cutting all the way thru the other side. Insert a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf in between each slice. Once the tomato is stuffed (it should “fan” out a bit) drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top. Drizzle it with your favorite sea salt – and voila! An update to everyone’s favorite caprese salad! ♥ ♥ ♥ @Joyce Remy Roberts @Kathy Shorba

    Great idea for a dinner party, a modern take on a class caprese salad. Take a whole tomato and cut slices into it (about 1/4″ thick) without cutting all the way thru the other side.  Insert a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf in between each slice.  Once the tomato is stuffed (it should “fan” out a bit) drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top.  Drizzle it with your favorite sea salt.

Learn how to peel fresh tomatoes | How To Make The Best Tomato Sauce.. My mother in-law used to freeze her extra roma tomatoes and when we needed any for sauces we would just pop out how many we needed and drop them in boiling water for several seconds..

artichoke + tomato tarts with peas, mint and parmesan.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks. These were pretty good, like the recipe says you have to eat them right out of the oven (when they cool off a little) otherwise they aren't good. The breading was really yummy and they were great dipped in marinara sauce. They weren't as good as restaurant style ones, not as soft and creamy but still good for making them at home. And easy too!

The only way I really like fresh tomatoes... paired with fresh mozzarella and copious amounts of basil. Mmm caprese.
