Caprese Salad

  • 24 ounce fresh mozzarella, cut into 1 ounce rounds
  • 24 each 1/4 inch sliced creole tomatoes
  • 6 1 ounce portions of mixed greens
  • 3 ounces balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1 1/2 ounces extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 teaspoons basil, finely chopped
  • 3/4 ounce yellow onion, finely chopped
  • kosher salt to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound crabmeat

Alternately layer the tomatoes and fresh mozzarella rounds on a plate. Season with salt and pepper, and sprinkle with basil.

In a mixing bowl, toss mixed greens with half of the balsamic vinaigrette, salt and pepper. Place the greens next to the tomatoes and mozzarella, on the plate.

Place the shaved onions on top of the greens and drizzle the remainder of the dressing on the tomatoes.

To finish gently fold the crabmeat and 2 tablespoons of the ravigote sauce in a bowl. Top the salad with 3 ounces of the crabmeat ravigote mixture.
