Caprese Salad

Bethany makes the caprese.

The tomatoes are so delicious, they work well in a simple caprese salad. When we have large slicing tomatoes I like to match them with sliced mozzarella. But in this case, Bethany mixed them with Mozzarita’s ┬áciliegine (out of Pompano Beach, FL and sold by Wholefoods) and the lemon basil from Frog Song. Not quite the right basil. A bit too harsh, but that is the pleasure of CSA, you use what you have. She finished it with some lovely Hojiblanca olive oil from Ancient Olive.
