BASIL MOZZARELLA APPETIZER

Last Sunday was our first official meeting for our latest venture, book club!  Its a great way to get together with girlfriends, chat about how you view the characters in the book and interpret the storyline, what you learned from the book and naturally... it's a great excuse to drink wine and hang with the beautiful women in your life!

A fun and easy way for everyone to contribute is to make it a potluck affair!  Our awesome friend, Lindsey, brought a delicious appetizer that I could not put down.  If the picture doesn't have you running to the kitchen yet, please see the recipe below and how EASY it is to make:

  • Fresh mozzarella
  • Tomatoes off the vine
  • Cucumbers
  • Fresh basil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • One clove garlic
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • Truffle salt

Thinly slice fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and cucumber.  From the bottom up, layer starting with cucumber, fresh mozzarella, tomato and top off with a fresh basil leaf.  Mix equal parts balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil then drizzle across the entire dish.

Mince one clove of garlic and sprinkle on top, followed by fresh cracked pepper and truffle salt.  You can use sea salt to replace truffle salt if needed.
