I have been desperately wanting the weather to be more beautiful and a chance to plant my herbs outside this spring. Unfortunately, with this ridiculous snow-in-March, it doesn't look promising. I usually plant my herbs indoors in my hanging garden and then transplant outside when the weather warms up.
This past week, I have found several fresh herb plants that were worth their weight in gold - including a beautiful basil plant from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes. I instantly picked up some fresh on-the-vine tomatoes and mozzarella to go with.
Drizzle the top with a mixture of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a teaspoon of pesto (I use Classico brand). I don't measure anything unless I'm baking - so use your judgement on this one. The key here is to salt the tomatoesjust a dash before layering the mozzarella. Otherwise, the flavor is not as robust. Enjoy!
