I love me any good tomato dish, and the fresher the dish, the deeper the love.
I’d seen caprese salad work before, but the mozzarella that Jeremiah put atop his salad was ridiculous.
So I said to myself, I wanna make that.
Problem was, I didn’t have any large tomatoes. (As of this blog, though, Caths and I got some truss tomatoes, and I am STOKED.) All I had on the countertop where we store our veggies in winter was a box of cherry tomatoes.
So inspiration struck. I’ma make myself some hors d’oeuvres as a snack. Monica Geller and the French call ’em “amuse bouche,” which roughly translates “amuses the mouth,” into and trust me, my palate was tickled.
So what went into this caprese salad?
Cherry tomatoes, salami, feta, and capers!
That simple! Chopped up the tomatoes, layered the salami, feta, and capers, and topped with with buds of thyme. I rather liked it!
