caprese and kale salad

Caprese salad is one of my most favorite salads ever.  It is perfect in the summer when tomatoes are at their best.  Lately I have been building this simple and delicious salad on a bed of kale.  The kale adds a nice crunch and makes me feel a little healthier.  If you aren't a kale fan, use any green you love.

I always top my caprese salads with a splash of balsamic vinegar, a tiny drizzle of olive oil, and sea salt. When Olivari Olive Oil asked me to try out their oil and post on the little things in life for their "year of the little" campaign, I knew I had to share this salad.  It is so simple, yet so amazing.  Totally one of the little things in life that makes me happy :).

caprese and kale salad {serves one}
-a cup {or more} of chopped kale 

-1 large tomato {I have been buying and loving heirlooms this summer}
-1 ounce of fresh mozzarella
-fresh basil {I like a lot}
-a splash of balsamic vinegar
-a tiny drizzle of olive oil {I use about two teaspoons}
-sea salt

To make this salad, just pile the kale onto a plate and top with sliced tomato, mozzarella, and chopped fresh basil.  Drizzle the balsamic and olive oil over the salad and sprinkle on a little bit of sea salt.
