Summertime, and the Livin’ Is Caprese

 The simplest repast these days is some variation of a tomato salad. The reasons for this are verdant plants producing sufficient fruit and little to no cooking (which heats up your kitchen). Consider a dish of differing heirlooms with a dressing (see my post “A Simple Vinaigrette”) and herbs, such as basil, parsley, and/or tarragon; or a plate of Caprese, including fresh mozzarella and tomato slices with basil, extra-virgin olive oil, and special salt. 

Truc (Tip): Wait until the last second to salt or dress tomato salad to avoid the loss of water.
