Tomato Sunrise

Steps to get to a Tomato Sunrise 

The distance between a slight smile and a big smile is really pretty short. So why not step one tiny teeny speck farther to get there? Making caprese salad this summer? You probably are! So why not make a Tomato Sunrise and have a laugh??


1 ripe tomato

2 big basil leaves

a couple slices of fresh mozzarella cheese

olive oil

salt and pepper


1.    Cut tomato in half and then slice it into thick slices. 2. Lay the biggest slice on a plate. 3. Cut some strips out of a remaining slice of tomato and lay these on plate to resemble rays from the sun. 4. Cut or tear some basil leaves in half lengthwise and lay on bottom edge of tomato slice to look like rolling hills. 5. Cut mozzarella to resemble clouds and lay on plate. 6. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
