This isn't a full-fledged caprese salad. But when I looked at our beautiful Pigman's tomatoes, I couldn't think of a better way to eat them than this way--despite the fact that we had no fresh mozzarella.
Tomatoes, coarsely chopped
Fresh basil, torn (we used some from our garden)
Freshly ground black pepper
Coarse salt, to taste (optional)
Combine all ingredients except salt. Taste, then add salt if desired. (I thought it was great without salt; Steve thought it was even better with salt.)
This was so fresh-tasting and delicious. I've never been a huge tomato fan . . . until I started eating real tomatoes. If you've had them, you know what I mean. There's just no comparison.
