I never understood why Italian cooking intimidates people. It’s so SIMPLE. As I’ve said many times, it’s all about basic, good quality ingredients. The same applies to Greek cuisine. That’s how all Mediterraneans eat. If you’ve been to either country, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
If you buy good olive oil, your food will taste better. If you use fresh ingredients, your food will taste better. If you cook with love, your food will taste better 🙂
This recipe is not a good example of what may seem complicated to someone, but it IS the perfect example of a delicious dish with simple, quality ingredients. Plus, it takes two minutes to make. Can’t argue with any of that!
fresh mozzarella balls
whole tomatoes, sliced lengthwise and halved
fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped or torn
extra virgin olive oil
white balsamic vinegar (optional)
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix. Taste as you go and adjust seasonings accordingly. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
Told you it was easy 🙂
