Last of the tomatoes

Published by: | Category: Waiheke Local | Leave a Comment

It’s sad to say but I think we are down to the last tomatoes in our garden. Oh how we are going to miss the ease of picking a good bowl full of ripe, plump, red juicy tomatoes (surely the fruit of the summer, and yes fruit not vegetable!) on a regular basis. Is this the sign that we are heading towards the latter stages of summer?

With the last picked from the shrivelled plants I thought I needed a celebratory dish, a dish that would make the tomato the hero. A simple dish that came to mind was simply adding basil, mozzarella and olive oil, to make the famous err…’tomato, basil and mozzarella salad’ now surely this is a recipe I can master.

Who knew that this salad had a name ‘Insalata Caprese’ ….so it was just me then.

So for those that need the recipe here it is.

  1. Slice the tomatoes
  2. Slice the Basil
  3. Slice the mozzarella
  4. Place decoratively on a plate
  5. Drizzle with Olive Oil
  6. Pour yourself a glass of wine (optional)
  7. Sit and eat in the sun (optional)

Simple and delicious, enjoy.
