Sometimes it’s all about the presentation. You can make a frugal dish look fabulous by trying something a little different.
Tomatoes and mozzarella can look pretty blah and ho-hum on a plate. I bought some very nice ripe medium sized tomatoes and was going to try serving them with spinach and not basil, because spinach is frugal.
I got the idea of serving them fan style to jazz up the look, and they turned out so pretty – don’t you agree?
Just slice them into thin slices from the top but DON’T cut all the way through the bottom. Cut mozzarella and spinach in half-moon shapes and insert into the slices. Drizzle a vinaigrette on top and VOILA! fancy tomato fans!
