Insalata Caprese

One of my reasons for starting the balcony garden was to make caprese salad. If you have good tomatoes this salad is just absolutely delicious. The first early girl tomato was a little bland but the subsequent picks have been very sweet. The only downside is the skin that is a little on the thick side. But the taste is really good. The combination of tomato, basil and mozzarella is just fantastic!
Linking to Wendy's blog for the GTTC challenge.


  1. I found that tomato skin varies in different temperature. Our yellow currants tomatoes were a bit on the thick side during summer. But surprisingly in winter, it does not have thick skin like summer.

  2. That looks so good. I'm kicking myself for not buying fresh mozzarella at the store last night...

  3. MKG - I thought maybe the hot temperature might have something to do with the tomato skin. It actually is so thick that I can probably peel the skin.

    Tangledbranches - I think I will have a stock of mozzarella in the fridge from now on.
