This recipe is so darn simple. It literally only requires a few simple ingredients. As I mentioned in my Melon Caprese Salad recipe, my Dad has a garden in Los Banos so we get to enjoy fresh produce seasonally. These heirloom tomatoes are perfect for this salad because they are so juicy and filled with so much flavor! This Tomato Prosciutto Caprese is also a feast for your eyes because it almost is too pretty to eat.

    Sp gorgeous – you’re right that it’s almost too pretty to eat. ALMOST! I love the addition of salty prosciutto to the classic summer-fresh flavors of caprese salad! So perfect with farm market heirloom tomatoes, but I agree that it’ll be lovely all year long, too. A little bit of summer, any time!
