Weekend Cooking: Caprese Salad

12 Jul 2015

I’m virtually a carnivore, and naturally salads don’t feature often on the menu whenever I decide to make dinner.  However I felt that I needed something fresh to accompany my Bayou chicken pasta for dinner tonight, and I decided on this lovely Caprese Salad, using the fresh parsley I happened to have on hand, and the basil I have growing in the garden.  I used cherry mozzarella since that’s all I could find at the store and didn’t bother dicing them, which I think was a mistake; I think the flavors would mix better if the mozzarella was in smaller pieces.  This was excellent when paired with the creamy pasta.
