Heirloom Caprese with Arugula & Walnut Pesto
*recipe courtesy of Executive Chef Katherine Haycox-Case
3 Heirloom Tomatoes – remove brown stem with a jagged edged strawberry huller and slice 1/8″ to 1/4″ thick (choose different colors for a visual treat!)
1 Mozzarella Ovoline – sliced 1/8″ thick top to bottom
1 8 oz. container AG Ferrari Arugula Walnut Pesto
2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 t Maldon’s Smoked Sea Salt
1) Layer tomatoes and ovoline onto a white platter or onto individual salad plates. You can lay down a bed of fresh arugula first if you want some greens in there!
2) Spoon pesto directly onto plate. Drizzle EVOO over tomatoes.
3) Sprinkle Maldon onto tomatoes and serve.
