Caprese


Caprese is one of those flavor combinations that I never get tired of. It's so simple but so delicious. Last week, I started a 20-day challenge for myself to eat cleaner: no alcohol, sweets, or carbs (grains like bread and pasta, not natural carbs like those found in fruit). Caprese has been in rotation lately, along with my new favorite omelette: goat cheese, mushrooms, onions & basil with salsa - yum! Caprese has been a really easy meal to throw together for dinner that is both yummy & satisfying. Simply slice a tomato & some creamy mozzarella, add fresh basil, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar - I use an 18-year-old balsamic that my mom always brings me from my hometown...it's to-die-for!
