Fresh heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The simple makings of a mouthful of pleasure. This is the sort of thing I will miss most about summer. It just isn’t the same with supermarket stuff found in the dead of winter. That only makes me appreciate it more ~ the summer, and the flavor. I’ve added a sliced baguette to this in the past, which is even better at soaking up the oil and vinegar, but for the carb and gluten avoiders no bread is needed, and the effect is just as delicious.
This makes a lovely late-morning or early afternoon snack, or a great appetizer before a summer evening of grilling. When the vegetables are at their peak, there’s no need to mask or amp up the flavor – they speak vibrant volumes on their own. Equally pretty to look at, it’s a feast for the eyes, mouth and summer-seeking soul.Back to Blog
