For all those who appreciate fresh greens, Spring turns our attention to planting and soon harvesting the best salad ingredients. This simple and quick recipe from The Savory Grape in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, will hold us over until early sprouts push through tilled earth and tiny green blossoms bear sweet red fruits. It’s a great starter for dinner and this season.
Lulu Sauvignon Blanc, France. Pleasant melon, citrus and green apple aromas with a palate that shows soft touches of minerality and crispness in this beautiful French, non-pretentious Sauvignon Blanc. The minerality in the wine blends beautifully with the acid of the tomatoes! Can't wait for the warm weather. Purchase here.
Place Arugula in center of decorative platter. Toss lightly with olive oil and lemon juice, salt and pepper. Place sliced tomatoes around arugula and lay the mozzarella on top of tomatoes.
