Well, I thought I had caprese-ed everything there was to caprese (yes, in my world caprese is a verb) but as it turns out, I HAD FORGOTTEN TO CREATE A BACON VERSION. I know!! If you haven’t yet discovered the wonder that is caprese, in its purest form it is a delectable conglomeration of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and basil, and I do love it that way. And along the way I have turned caprese into an appetizer, a steak topping, a bread pudding and a pastry.
But wouldn’t you think the first lightbulb that went off in my head would have been to add bacon to the mix? Well, better late then never, here I am with bacon caprese salad. Let’s make it!
