A Classic Seattle Caprese
Posted on February 10, 2012
Ever since Bricco (now closed) in Seattle’s Upper Queen Anne neighborhood told me where they get their buffalo mozzarella cheese I have been obsessed with this simple to make salad.
- Madara Mozzarella di Buffala Trader Joe’s (upper Queen Anne)
- Hawaiian Sea Salt Uwajimaya (5th Ave S.)
- Vine Tomatoes from Yakima and Fresh Basil Frank’s Produce (Pike Place Market)
- President’s Reserve Olive Oil from Trader Joes
Simply slice the mozzarella with a very sharp knife into 1/4 inch pieces. Chop about 6 leaves of basil. Half 4 vine tomatoes. Layout accordingly onto plate, a light drizzle of EVOO a heavy pinch of sea salt. Sprinkle the chopped basil. Finally fresh cracked pepper.
