five colored little italian

Saturday, August 28
I found Heirloom tomatoes at a store this morning, and thought of Insalata Caprese - a simple beauty made of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese, and personally, one of the best ways to enjoy good tomatoes. So I got mozzarella and basil too.

My Heirloom tomatoes were of red, purple and yellow each. Contrary to my expectation that they, called "Heirloom", should taste wilder (maybe bitter) than most of common tomatoes, all the three kinds had sweetness in their robust taste.

Delicious as they were, my Caprese made a refreshing and soothing lunch on this lousy hot summer day.
