Bleu Caprese Salad
Is it worth it to buy that 2.50 heirloom tomato? Here I cut it up and put some Maytag Bleu Cheese with it, put on a bed of greens, basil leaves and reduced balsamic. It isn't cheap but can be as satisfying or more than another splurge like a steak.
Caprese salad was invented by a restauranteur in the 50s on the Island of Capri off the coast of Naples, Italy. The recipe is simple use tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves. A little balsamic makes the perfect dressing.
This salad is really open to creative presentation, and your playful twists.
In this case I used Bleu cheese instead of mozzarella
