After pretty much two weeks straight of being sick I couldn't be happier to feel better. What was even better was having such a beautiful WARM sunny day. I would hug the weather if I could.
The sun had me totally inspired for lunch so I whipped up my modified version of a fresh Caprese salad. I fly pretty loose with ingredients when I'm in the kitchen. If you'd like a fairly standard recipe for a Caprese salad there's a good one here. I dice all my ingredients because I love scooping it up with some warm garlic bread.
Caprese Salad Recipe
1 tomato per person
buffalo mozarella to taste
2 artichoke hearts
3 clove of garlics minced
salt to taste
a healthy pinch of dried oregano
2-3 tbsp of fresh fennel minced
2-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
fresh basil to taste
Like I said before, I dice all ingredients to make it bread friendly. Mix it all in a bowl and enjoy. So simple. So tasty.
