Can I cook, eat and Instagram for a living? Because look at this fresh basil.
And look at this appetizer I made myself and ate while waiting for Brussels sprouts to cook.
You can't see it, but there's some of that amazing Balsamic vinegar on it that I told you about yesterday.
Remember? The blackberry ginger stuff?
This is one of those recipes that's not even a recipe. I just make it whenever I have fresh basil. And I have fresh basil whenever I'm grocery shopping without a list and the scent of the basil in the produce section captivates me. When that happens, I then also have to buy tomatoes and mozzarella.
Slice tomatoes. Place them on a plate, pretty-like. Slice some fresh mozzarella. Fresh is really the key word. Tear off some basil leaves. Slice the leaves if you like. Cover it all in a little Balsamic vinegar, some Kosher salt, and a little freshly ground pepper.
I think I was about 24 when I ate this simple combination for the first time. Where has it been all my life? Don't make the same mistake I did.
