italian ciabatta bread with olive tapenade, and caprese salad
We had no plates and no real utensils, except plastic forks from the restaurants. This is a italian ciabatta bread with olive tapenade served on a paper napkin, and caprese salad in stainless steel mixing bowl. A comedian once made a joke about how he was raped by the prices of this grocery store called, "Whole Foods". I thought it was pretty funnny at first, until tonight... I shopped at Whole Foods and I GOT RAPED.
I bought just a handful of goods, and the bill was nearly hitting $40s !!! #*^$ GRR
I could have gotten the same amount of stuff at Food Basics in Toronto for 20 dollars or less.
Anyways!! Anger aside.. here's my version of the caprese salad.
Fresh buffalo mozzo cheese.
EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
Pesto made with cilentro & lime juice.
The spin off of this classical italian dish, if you haven't noticed, is that I used pesto made from cilentro and lime. The basil was just chiffonade into the final salad to heighten the freshness.
Cilentro & Lime pesto. Brilliant or what?!
