If you didn't already know, the classic Caprese is one of the most refreshing salads you can have all summer long. And it taste even better when you find the freshest, most perfect, summer tomatoes.

This Rustic Caprese is the simplest, yet most delicious salad - proof that simple is better! If you want to see a video on how this is done, just head on over to my instagram!

I like to use a mix of tomatoes, cut in half or even quartered.

Then instead of slicing fresh mozzarella the classic way, I like to pull it apart.

Scatter the pulled mozzarella and fresh basil around the tomatoes.

Liberally season with salt, and a drizzle of really good extra virgin olive oil.
