Tomato and Mozzarella Salad, also known to the initiated as Insalata Caprese, and to the even more initiated as the Tricolore (its three colors: red, white and green are the exact colors of the Italian flag), is one of the simplest and most delicious salads I know. In fact, this was my appetizer of choice in restaurants, before I became interested in food and determined to try out all sorts of different dishes. Trying out new dishes is definitely interesting, especially when I consider my proclivity for choosing the weird and the experimental. Fortunately, I manage to pawn off the food I don’t like on Tim, who, by the way, picks the best thing on the menu 99% of the time. He, consistently, outpicks me, even when I don’t follow the particularly adventurous route, and I, consistently, make him eat my food while stealing his. What can I say… he knows how to pick his food and I knew how to pick my man. Once in a while, I will still order Insalata Caprese, which while not adventurous or weird, is unusual in its simplicity and flavor.
