Pin It How do you take this pretty salad and make it prettier? Build a tower! Stacking up a caprese salad is a classy affair.
I saw Jacques Pépin do this to a tomato many years ago, and it stayed with me. I think he might have used feta though. I wanted to give it a try with mozzarella, and a giant heirloom tomato from the garden. Instead of sprawling out, this salad rose up into the sky.
The husband cooked up a beautiful marinara sauce, giant beans with sage, and we opened a bottle of pinot. The meal was bright, light and tasty.
