15 minute gourmet. by violet.

so, it's been a long few weeks. busy busy busy- work is insane (right, orange?), crush is still a crush, summer time activities are in full swing... shoot. i am wiped out. so tonight i came home wanting one thing: a quiet night, a good dinner and a glass of wine. or a bottle.

luckily, this past weekend, i bought a basil plant from Trader Joe's. it's sitting in the window, looking fresh and smelling amazing. so, i grabbed some mozzarella and roma tomatoes and made the easiest meal on the face of the planet- all the while feeling like a supremely gourmet modern woman!

just snip 8-10 basil leaves from your pretty little plant.
slice 4-5 wedges of mozzarella.
cut up 2 roma tomatoes to match the cheese slices.
drizzle equal parts balsamic vinegar and olive oil to lightly soak the fresh salad.
sprinkle lemon pepper, sea salt and voila!

the 15-minute gourmet CAPRESE SALAD!

top off with a glass of Sinner’s Punch (courtesy of crush-extraordinaire) and a little girl time with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte.

let the evening commence. cheers!
