Scrumptious Simplicity

There is nothing more scrumptious on a warm sunshiny day than fresh fruits and veggies. One of my favorite sides for just such a day is a mix between a caprese salad and bruschetta. The combination of juicy tomatoes, robust garlic, and fresh flavorful basil is delicious when placed atop pizza, mixed into pasta with a sprinkling of freshly grated parmesan cheese or simply enjoyed on its own.

The are only a few ingredients in this dish, the trick to getting this salad to really shine is to make sure you are using the freshest ingredients you can find. This past week I have found the Japanese tomatoes from Beylik Farms to be perfectly sweet, the classic Red On the Vine tomatoes work splendidly too, or for a splash of color try mixing in some Heirloom tomatoes.

Caprese Chop Salad

Serves 4



8 tomatoes, cut into small squares

6-10 leaves of fresh basil, chopped

3-4 cloves of garlic, minced or crushed

sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Combine the tomatoes, basil, and garlic in a small bowl, add salt and pepper to desired taste and wha-la it’s complete! Set aside to use as a tasty addition to a meal later or grab a fork and enjoy as is.


With the right ingredients even the simplest of recipes can be a scrumptious success!
