Caprese salad, that ubiquitous arrangement of fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes and basil leaves, is the "it" dish for all the Hamptons "it" girls. Served in a mini pita, it makes a beautiful, fresh and simple bite, which one client said "tastes like July." Baby heirloom tomatoes offer a sweet, juicy flavor that works well with extra-luscious buffalo mozzarella and good-quality extra-virgin olive oil.

Ingredients

Directions

Divide the pitas in half so you have 24 half-moon pockets. 

Stuff each pocket with 3 to 4 pieces of mozzarella and set aside. 

Place the tomatoes in a small bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Add the salt and toss to combine. 

Add some tomatoes to each pita pocket, and finish with a little basil and ground pepper. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

Trader Joe's mini pitas work especially well. They're tasty and are the smallest we have found.
