insalata caprese


i've been re-hooked on that classic dish of capri - real mozzarella, ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. jasmine made a huge, gorgeous plate of these when we were at her house a few weeks ago. it reminded me of my trip to capri with jill, when she gracefully took a day off from her dissertation research at "camp vatican" so we could check out the isle for ourselves. i rarely get inspired when kitchen duty is involved, but just had to have more of these. so i re-created the glory in my own home and ate these little goodies nearly to the point of illness.
