Quick & Easy Insalata Caprese With a Tang

Posted on | July 16, 2013 | 1 Comment

If you are Italian & get easily upset by traditional Italian recipes being tweaked… QUICK- LOOK AWAY! :D*

For the rest of us that don’t have or want to take the time to make it look all pretty, with perfect little slices & layering- QUICK- LOOK NOW 😀

I love Insalata Caprese. The flavours are rich, when you use high(er) quality ingredients. I’ve tried it the traditional way, & I love that, too. When I was at the farmers market this past weekend, I was getting tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes from a local farm. She had basil, too!! And I decided I wanted to make Insalata Caprese. I hopped down to the store later that day. OK, I didn’t hop. My knees can’t handle that, but… whatever. I picked up a tub of mozzarella balls. You know, the stuff in the cloudy, milky-white liquid? Yeah. The GOOD stuff.

By the time dinner rolled around, I was feeling tired & too lazy to slice everything into perfect little slices. So I decided to dice everything. And for an extra boost of tang AND nutrition, I threw in some apple cider vinegar. YUM! So, in all fairness, I’m sharing my lazy lady’s version with you.

*For the record, I mean NO harm. I have some Italian friends that like to pick on me for tweaking their recipes. This is for them. Kinda tongue in cheek fun 🙂
