I decided to start with Caprese for the first recipe on our community recipe site because it it quick, healthy, and fairly inexpensive. I’m kind of a big fan. You can make some caprese for lunch, for an appetizer, or for a snack.  Anyways, here are the details:

Ingredients:

Tomato
mozzarella cheese
pepper
salt
basil

Dressing:
1/3 olive oil
1/3 balsalmic vinegar
1/3 lemon juice
shake together well and pour on top. dressing also good for salads.

Directions:
slice the tomato and mozzarella cheese. place cheese on tomato. sprinkle some salt, pepper, and dressing on top. Place in oven at 450 degrees for 5 minutes. Sprinkle some basil on top or place a basil leaf on each. Eat and feel salubrious!

Change it Up:
Fill free to include little baguettes to eat with your tomato. I didn’t have any today, but if I had I would have used something like Smith’s french bread cut up into tiny pieces, drizzled with olive oil and baked for 5 mins at 450 degrees before placing the rest of the tomato concoction on top of it and placing in the oven for another 5 mins.
