Late Night Nibble: Caprese

‘When the Moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s Amore…’

If you are feeling inspired by the late night moons of love and craving a slice of Italiana…  

A Caprese Salad is just the solution! 

It’s a simple Italian salad, comprised of fresh mozzarella slices, vine ripened tomatoes and fresh basil julienned,  dusted with Kosher salt, seasoned with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. 

Rumor has it… The salad was inspired by the tri colored Red, White and Green, which makes up the Italian flag. 

Coming in at only 22 Calories per tomato, they are brimming full of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Potassium… Tomatoes are also an outstanding antioxidant rich in concentrations of lycopene, which plays quite the special role in bone health!
