Caprese Three Ways

It’s late summer, tomatoes are everywhere! They’re at the farmer’s markets, in your garden, in your friends garden, so on, and so on. What to do with all of these beauties? Well in the heat of the summer, there’s one obvious go-to for most - Caprese Salad! Tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, olive oil and basil. This crisp, delicious classic never gets old...but does invite a change up. Here we show Caprese three ways, with three different cheeses and herbs. Unlike traditional Caprese, where the mozzarella is mostly relying on the other ingredients to brighten it’s tang, the blue, chevre and provolone all bring a big bang of their own, and compliment the sweet, acidic tomatoes to create a burst of flavor madness in the mouth. So
mozzarella, it’s not you, it’s us, and we just need to see some other cheeses right now. Enjoy!
