Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter C

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Caprese Salad! Here’s a refreshingly healthy salad alternative to the traditional Cobb Salad. This little number boasts an international flavor with an Italian influence. Right now fresh tomatoes-on-the-vine are available at the market. Hand-pick them in any size cluster you desire. All natural mozzarella makes all the difference, especially when surrounded by this season’s basil leaves. Pluck the basil from your window herb garden or go straight to the organic produce section of your favorite grocers. As you dive in to this crispy salad, notice the colors of the flag of Italy. Grazie, grazie molto!
