Let’s sit down and have something to eat and drink.
In fresh Caprese cuisine, the past and present live together, in proper proportions. To honor a culinary culture that has made simplicity its forte with that "simplicity that is hard to get", of course. Source
What better treat than an Insalata Caprese
Making a Caprese Salad is very simple.
- Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese and layer between the two.
- Add fresh leaves of Basil
- Drizzle with olive oil
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper
- Drizzle with vinegar (optional)
Most people seem to like balsamic vinegar, I do too. But, we just finished a batch of Basil vinegar and I used that. Oh you would not believe the amazing smell of Basil in our kitchen when I made this salad! Divine!
Limoncello (Italian pronunciation: [limonˈtʃɛllo]) is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi and islands of Procida, Ischia and Capri. It is also produced in Sicily, Sardinia, Menton in France, and the Maltese island of Gozo. Though there is debate about the exact origin of the drink, it is at least one hundred years old. Source
Add some simple grapes and you have the perfect light lunch.
I just picked up this basket for .95 cents at a thrift store. I love it!
After our lunch we can sit and enjoy some Espresso.
I thought these were the perfect dishes to use for our lunch. They have a wonderful regional feel to them.
I’m so glad you stopped by and I hope you enjoyed a little Italian getaway with me!
