Caprese Salad

Our Heirloom tomatoes are really producing now that the weather is sunny.  Yesterday I made this Caprese Salad for our lunch.  It was so pretty I took a picture of it.

Red, Green and Yellow tomatoes dressed with one of my favorite olive oils, Meyer Lemon Olive Oil;  I used a Buffalo Mozzarella cheese from Trader Joe's and Genovese Basil picked fresh from my garden.  Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and some fresh ground pepper. 


  1. Wow Carla, Beautiful salad and heirloom tomatoes! We may be late blight again in our area! Maybe no tomatoes for us! Thanks for sharing your salad with me!

  2. My all time favorite way to eat tomatoes, and why I grow basil, heaps of it (well, this and pesto). Considering adding a goat here for some homemade mozzarella too :P Your salad looks absolutely divine!

  3. lemonverbenalady,
    I think some of my plants have it too. Thank goodness I planted a lot of plants.

  4. Thank you all for stopping by!

    Curbstone, I wish I had space for animals. I would just love to have a goat.


Thank you for taking time to visit my blog, I love hearing from you, stay as long as you like, Carla
