Anyone have any tips on making great caprese salad? I know it’s simple, of course, but what makes it the best it can be? Marinate? Don’t marinate? Thoughts?


I know it's sacrilege, but I always add vinegar to my caprese salads.

Doesn’t that overpower the other flavors?

I don't think so. We have a little spritzer bottle with vinegar.

We add just enough to give it a little tang.

it's not about technique for me. it's about the quality of the ingredients.

also, i think there's already thread on this, but this currently is my favorite affordable, accessible olive oil. it's really, really good:

oh LV, i lied. there is one thing i love to do with a caprese: sprinkle sea (or kosher if you don't have it) salt on it. the salty crunch (like lenny's internet towel) is fantastic.

I hate my relationship with cole slaw. I feel like I only like it 25% of the time, the other times it's too sweet/creamy. One of the most inconsistently prepared sides out there today.

The sweet potato fry might be the worst side item on the modern menu.
