I like it when food is pretty.
Pretty food makes my eyes sing. Makes my heart leap. Makes my pants giddy. Makes my throat shimmy. Makes my hands sweaty. Makes my – oh, I need to wrap this up? K.
There's just not much on this earth prettier than a dang hasselback caprese salad. AmIrightoramIright. The reds, the greens, the whites, the pops of black. It makes my eyes sing. My heart leap. My pants gid - ugh, okay.
Let's do this!
Take four roma tomatoes. My fingers accidentally typed 45 at first. You could take 45 tomatoes if you want. It's your prerogative.
Thinly slice them, but not all the way through! Just towards the bottom, like this.
Then you buy one of those pre-sliced logs of mozzarella because you have twins and zero time to slice your own cheese. The end.
But I guess you DO have time to tear some basil leaves.
And slice the mozzarella cheese in half. And then stuff stuff stuff the cheese and basil leaves in the tomato slices.
In the meantime, you've reduced some balsamic vinegar in a little pot and are now drizzling it and some olive oil over each Hasselback like a champ.
Pretty, huh? Are your pants giddy?
Bev thinks 45 was a good idea. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
