Feasting on summer’s abbondanza

by The 100 Companies

Vine-ripened tomatoes and an abundance of fresh basil star in this stunning (not to mention patriotic) dish that shines. Serve on its own for an easy, no-cook meal; stuffed in a crusty loaf of bread; or alongside grilled meat or seafood.

Insalata Caprese (salad of Capri):

Fresh heirloom or beefsteak tomatoes

Fresh mozzarella cheese

Fresh basil leaves

Extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt and cracked pepper

Slice tomatoes and mozzarella into rounds; layer alternately, adding basil to create the colors of the Italian flag. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving, ideally at room temperature.
