Caprese Salad is one of my favorite summer dishes. Homegrown tomatoes and basil with fresh mozzarella, what is not to love about that!
My tomatoes are not quite ready yet so I made do with vine ripened tomatoes from the grocery store. Fresh mozzarella is a must, the drier aged version is not the same by a long shot. My basil however, is raring to go! I decided to make a salad today using these ingredients and paring with a chicken thigh layered with basil, tomato and mozzarella. Topped with a really great balsamic vinegar, YUM!
I used Buon Appetito to season my chicken. This wonderful salt free blend is a balanced mix of Greek oregano, basil, marjoram, thyme, rosemary and sage. Perfect addition to tomatoes, tomato sauces, fish, poultry, meat, and salad dressings.
A glass of slightly chilled Chianti is a perfect pairing with this dish.
Wine & Spice Makes Everything Nice!
