In an effort to provide more lunch hour awareness, I wanted to share my latest food obsession: Caprese Salad.
I’ve been eating this salad for lunch for weeks. It’s only about 350 calories, very filling, and has a lovely spice.
Want to make it?
Gather your ingredients:
A whole tomato
Salt and pepper
Cut the tomato into 5 thick slices, place a basil leaf on top of each tomato slice, cut 4 ounces of cheese into 5 slices, drizzle with one teaspoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
I love the peppery basil leaves and am quite generous with the pepper on top for the extra spice. It’s a satisfying meal and feels fancy on a plain day.
The only way this salad would be better is if my garden tomatoes were ready. We’re a long way from that, but I am already drooling at the thought of fresh, sweet garden tomatoes to bring a whole new flavor to the Caprese salad.
