Simple Caprese Salad

Once upon a time, this blog had a focus. It was themed around simple ingredients, local and seasonal stuff, comfort foods that brought you back to your happy place.

Somewhere between travels, feeling reminiscent, and being inspired by my ever-changing landscape of expat friends, the ingredients became less simple (I’m talking to you, kaffir leaves). The recipes were no long familiar (hi, beet pesto). And Cucina Povera got lost.

Today, I’m reeling it back in. 5 ingredients. Brimming with Italian-ness.

Did I mention we ate like pigs in Italy? Well it didn’t stop there when I went to dinner with colleagues to the Samba Kitchen; a Brazilian churrascaria with all you can eat meat, serves from swords.

It was time to eat simple. Light. Easy.

I’m sure you’ve seen a million of variations of Caprese Pops, skewers, etc. Will this is not fancy. It’s not modern. It’s actually kind of boring – but I love it. It’s an heirloom that’s tried and true.
