True to form, I didn't cook tonight. I didn't make a salad either(!). I cheated and went out for dinner with friends. But since it was an Italian restaurant, I am sharing this classic Insalata Caprese in order to stick with my "week of salads." I did make it over the weekend so it kind of counts. :) The key is using really great ingredients: Mozzarella di Bufala, ripe tomatoes (although August will be especially killer), fresh basil, a pinch of sea salt, and extra virgin olive oil.
I guess it could be considered a side salad, but with all of that fresh mozzarella, the fat and calories suggest otherwise!
