Sometimes I love elaborate dishes filled with complex and layered flavors, like braised chickpeas in a tomato broth or pomegranate-glazed chicken. Other times, all I crave is the simple but perfect combination of a caprese salad.
Ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, torn basil leaves, balsamic vinegar and olive oil, salt and pepper.
Such simple ingredients that go so well together. Sometimes you just don’t want to mess up that combination by adding more layers or switching things up, it’s just not worth it. They work too well together to keep them apart. They belong together. So go make yourself a caprese salad and enjoy every bite of it’s perfection.
