Sometimes, things don’t need to be complicated to be fantastic. A peach, peeled and sliced. An apple dipped in honey. A slice of bread spread with a thin layer of hummus.
Or, in this case, a simple salad. Sungold cherry tomatoes, tiny balls of fresh mozzarella, freshly torn basil, a swig of olive oil and a sprinkle of kosher salt (I was all out of sea salt). It’s simple as can be and takes just a few moments to pull together … and yet, this is something that the kids and I just devour.
Sometimes, simplicity really is the best thing.
