Food Porn: Caprese Salad

Food Porn: Caprese SaladI like to think that people who visit this website probably have some of the same sensibilities I do, so I bring you food porn. Last night I made pretty much my favorite food in the world, caprese salad. It is fresh mozzerella, tomatoes, basil and olive oil. Simple, clean, and absolutely amazing. Here's how to make it!

What you'll need:

  • 2 Balls (Approx 8 ounces) Fresh Mozzerella must be fresh, in the liquid. If you use shredded or string cheese or something I will kill you.
  • 2 smallish tomatoes (romas are best for this).
  • A hefty handful of fresh basil again, if you use dried basil or something, death is imminent.
  • Your best extra-virgin olive oil (you should have this on hand anyway, shouldn't you?).
  • salt (kosher is the best).
  • fresh ground pepper.

Cut the tomatoes and mozz into medallion sized pieces. You can do the basil in a number of ways, chiffonade is good for maximum basil coverage, but you can tear the leaves or use them whole if you want it to be more of a salad green kind of thing. Mix gently in a bowl (so you don't crush the cheese) with the olive oil and a pinch of salt. After it is all mixed, dress with a swig of more olive oil on the top, grind some pepper, and you are ready to eat! EAT IT! IT'S DELICOUS!
