Heirloom Tomato Caprese
A Caprese salad is usually sliced tomatoes alternated with sliced mozzarella and basil leaves with olive oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled on top. It is really more of an antipasto than a traditional salad. This version takes it back into the salad world and it becomes a great dish to serve at any summer event, from a barbecue to a formal dinner.The key to a great Caprese is great ingredients; since there are only a few, you need to make sure they really shine. Tomatoes have a wide range of quality going from tasteless to mind-blowing. Though recent advances in winter greenhouse tomatoes have dramatically increased the quality of off-season tomatoes, there is nothing like an in-season ripe local tomato.Heirloom tomatoes tend to bruise more easily than regular tomatoes, but they have better flavor. The best way to tell is with your nose. This is true for basil and most other fruits and vegetables as well: how it smells is how it will taste.Click here to see 15 Tastiest Heirloom Tomato Recipes.

The secret to this pasta salad is in a jar. Marinated roasted red peppers with olive oil and garlic add tons of flavor to an otherwise bland pasta salad.

Panini
I am obsessed with my panini maker. I believe everyone should own one. Many of the new versions have two-sided cooking surfaces, like this one, that allow you to use them as a griddle when you’re not grilling pressed sandwiches. This panini is unique because it features focaccia, a dense, “quilty” Italian bread whose spongy texture soaks up flavor. I also like the fact that focaccia doesn’t have an overly chewy crust — it’s perfect for your picnic enjoyment!

Green Tomato and Cantaloupe Caprese Salad
A few weeks ago, I would have described green tomatoes as unripe anomalies — complete strangers to my kitchen. After developing this recipe, however, I now consider them to be deliberately firm and slightly sweet friends of mine. A simple and refreshing take on Caprese salad, this dish is the perfect introduction to those little green flavor machines. Combined with bright orange cantaloupe and fresh mozzarella at its base, the recipe takes hold of several savory and sweet components and takes your palate for a ride. See all salad recipes.

Stuffed Chicken Caprese Recipe
Why is it that Chefs and cooking magazines don’t seem to tell us simple tricks that add lots of flavor to a recipe?  In this case, marinating the chicken with various spices both softens the chicken and creates flavor.  I learned this method in a number of other recipes that I was making.  Those dishes were designed for a long marinade, and generally, a slow cooking process.  The results are so good with this process, why not try to use it in other ways?So how about using for a quicker cooking method?  In this Stuffed Chicken Caprese, I did just that.  In so doing, I began to create the layers of flavor we always hear them talk about on the food cooking shows.  For more great recipes like this one, visit Feed Your Soul Too.
