End of the Summer Salad

I cover my basil each night trying to keep it alive and breathing as long as possible. We have been eating a version of this salad a lot to get our fill of the last of the basil.


Pick some large leaves and keep them whole.


Arrange slices of fresh Mozzarella on top of the basil leaves on a plate. Top them with slices of oven roasted tomatoes and Turkish roasted peppers. The recipes for both are on my sidebar.


Place some pesto pasta down the middle of the plate. My pesto pasta recipe is also on the sidebar or just type it into my search engine.


Drizzle the entire salad with balsamic glaze and a couple tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar. With a roll this is a whole meal!

Really nice, but summer is so definitely gone here so I might try this one in August 2012.

I love a simple basil & tomato salad so this is perfect! I only wish my basil had lasted longer this year!
