There’s just something about the combination of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil leaves. Whether it’s on a crispy Margherita pizza or in the form of a chilled Caprese salad, I’m in heaven.
I indulged in the most amazing & fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil salad on my last trip to Germany, believe it or not. It was at the beautiful home of family friends, where they grow all of their produce outside their back door. And I’ve never been to Italy, but I can’t imagine dining on an authentic Caprese salad there could taste any better.
But thanks to Contadina and their #CleanPlate campaign, we had that taste of heaven last night. Rich little bites of tomato-basil pesto, smooth mozzarella and crisp puff pastry… they’re incredibly simple, but packed with flavor and flair. Just perfect for an appetizer on the whim!
Every mealtime masterpiece starts with Contadina and ends with a clean plate. While many people enjoy posting photos of their food before they eat, we believe that a clean plate afterwards is the true testament to a delicious meal. And that meal is a labor of love, so share your gratitude with a clean plate celebration on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Contadina.
