easy peasy caprese salad

it's hot, so for supper tonight i threw together a quick, cool caprese salad for myself. the others were here, but they were not interested in sharing my flavorful little insalata, fine by me. i had recently bought some locally grown orange and yellow tomatoes and couldn't wait to try one. i choose an orange tomato and sliced it alternately layering it with fresh mozzarella, a few julienned leaves of my window basil, a splash of fruity olive oil and sweet balsamic vinegar, finishing with a generous sprinkling of kosher salt and coarse black pepper. how can something so simple be so amazing? instead of licking the plate this time, i sopped up the juices with some nann bread. now that's amore. enjoy.
