Summer caprese salad

A great caprese salad starts with great ingredients! Caprese salads are meant to be enjoyed during the summer, when tomatoes are at their juiciest and sweetest. I like to stop by the farmers market and collect as many colorful types of tomatoes as I can.

For this recipe I went with beefsteak tomatoes as I wanted a uniform color and shape, but don’t be afraid to use other varieties, as each type brings slightly different texture and taste and will keep things interesting.

Serves 4.
