Market Recipe: Caprese Salad

caprese

A Saturday morning market trip has found itself in the weekly routine of many of our customers. Roaming from booth to booth, market-goers are able to get their weekly shopping done in one place. Before the stress of the work week begins, it is always nice to plan out a few meals and gather the ingredients from local vendors.  A few days ago, Farmer Neal from Abby Lee Farms mentioned “tomatoes are going to be fantastic this week – three new color heirlooms and two new cherry colors.”  Why not pick up some of these delicious tomatoes at the market this weekend and make a few meals out of them? Here is a recipe to get you started. 

Picking up an item at Abby Lee Farms, Fiscalini Cheese, and Maya’s Farm, Caprese Salad is a quick and easy recipe to prepare using only market ingredients (and sustainable ones)! 

SHOPPING LIST:

3 Medium Tomatoes- Find them at Abby Lee Farms

8 oz Scamorza Cheese- Find it at Fiscallini Cheese

1/2 Cup Torn Basil Leaves- Find it at Maya’s Farm

DIRECTIONS:

Slice the tomatoes and scamorza cheese

Layer tomatoes and cheese on a plate with the torn basil

Optional: Drizzle with balsamic and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste

Enjoy
