From our partners at Colavita comes a fresh take on old school caprese that will get your taste buds ready for the food at our Farm to Fork Fondo gourmet aid stations.
ripe tomatoes on the vine
1 lb fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Colavita Balsamic Glace
1. Heat a grill or grill pan to high. Lightly rub the tomatoes with Colavita Olive Oil and place them on the grill. Grill in one position for about 2 minutes, rotate and grill another three minutes. The tomatoes will wilt and release their juices.
2. Remove them from the grill and set aside.
3. Place the sliced mozzarella cheese in the center of a large serving plate. Place the grilled tomatoes around the sides of the sliced cheese.
4. Sprinkle the cheese and tomatoes with sea salt and drizzle with both Colavita Olive Oil and Balsamic Glaze.
