Iron Man and I have both been following the The South Beach Diet for the past three weeks. During those weeks, we picked up a few recipe ideas that we previously wouldn’t have thought of.
One of our favorite recipes came from my dear friend Leslie, who invited us to have dinner with her beautiful family. Knowing our dietary efforts, Leslie supplemented our meal with a delicious caprese salad, for which I adamantly demanded (ahem) politely requested the recipe. The caprese salad gave us the delicious Italian-food taste that we love and missed. Better still, it’s quite quick and easy to prepare.
I’ve made it three times since.
Here’s how it’s done:
Layer in the bottom of a pan:
- Sliced Tomatoes
- Fresh Basil Leaves
- Sliced Mozzarella Cheese
Drizzle with Balsamic Vinegar. Maybe a little Olive Oil too.
This could be eaten immediately, but it’s better if it is covered and refrigerated for a while; the longer the better.
Enjoy! I certainly am!
Leslie, did I get that right? Correct me if I missed anything or messed up the order of the layers. Yours was better, somehow.
