As a little tribute to the EDYN garden sensor, I am sharing my favorite summatime salad, which is basically my favorite way to eat fresh tomatoes. A simple Caprese salad. The key to making a good Caprese is good quality ingredients. Fresh sweet tomatoes, fresh basil, a soft fresh mozzarella, good olive oil, and Maldon salt.
Roasting vegetables is something we do a lot around here. Lately, I've been dabbling in roasted chickpeas, which make a killer addition to Caesar salad, pasta, or for snacking. I love the idea of warm roasted vegetables piled high on top of pasta, drizzled with olive oil, and topped with seasonal herbs.
In the mean time, I will leave you with my favorite spring salad. It's fresh and colorful and the perfect pop of color for this time of year. I got this crazy awesome mandolin at Christmas, and it slices the radishes into such perfectly beautiful thin strips.
