Would you believe that the tomatoes and basil in this Caprese Salad recipe are home grown in our apartment balcony garden in Sharjah? For the second time around, I decided to go ahead with my balcony gardening and it was successful this time.
The tomatoes are super fresh I tell you, if only I can grow tomatoes all year round in my balcony here in the desert, I will do it.
With my first tomato harvest, I made some Caprese salad, it is an easy no cook recipe.
I used 4 tomatoes, few basil leaves, mozzarella cheese, olive oil, salt and black pepper and a very little amount of apple cider vinegar.
I cut the tomatoes in wedges, and halve the mozzarella, I use latbri mozzarelline, their small balls of mozzarella cheese
I toss them in a bowl, add some basil leaf, drizzle with olive oil and less than 1/4 tsp of apple cider vinegar as alternative to balsamic vinegar, add a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, mix and you are done.
Serve it with some fresh bread and enjoy.
