Caprese

Tell me: WHY can’t we get tomatoes like this in the U.S.?! Why is it impossible? Deep red. Full-flavored. Properly ripened. High acid. Mmm! THAT’S how tomatoes should be!

Pair them with some fresh mozzarella. Drizzle a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Some shreds of basil plucked from the lone plant on the kitchen window sill. And a dusting of salt and pepper. Heaven on a plate.

    Tomatoes and basil – the taste of summer! Heavenly. Summer has finally arrived here in Seattle. Looks like it will be 80 degrees for July 4. Ahhh..

    Steve had a caprese for lunch today with some chicken. It reminded up so much of Italy!
