A Birthday Celebration


YOU AND I
Only one I in the whole wide world
And millions and millions of you,
But every you is an I to itself
And I am a you to you, too!
But if I am a you and you are an I
And the opposite also is true,
It makes us both the same somehow
Yet splits us each in two.
It's more and more mysterious,
The more I think it through:
Every you everywhere in the world is an I;
Every I in the world is a you!

Happy Birthday !
In honor of Ms. Hoberman's birthday I thought you would enjoy adding another easy summer salad recipe to your collection.
Tomato Caprese Salad
Cook's notes: Insalata Caprese is a simple salad from the Italian region of Campania (Capri). It is traditionally made with vine ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella slices, basil and seasoned with salt and a little olive oil. The following recipe comes from a friend with a little different take on the traditional recipe.
Ingredients:

  • tomato slices
  • mozzarella or provolone cheese
  • spinach leaves
  • prepared vidala onion and poppyseed dressing
  • grated Parmesan cheese  
  • optional red onion slices
Directions:

  • starting at one end of serving plate alternate pieces of torn spinach leaves, 1/2 cheese slice and tomato (large slice cut in half or use a small slice)
  • grate Parmesan cheese over entire plate and drizzle with dressing 
Serving Suggestion: Individual salad plates can be made following same procedure as shown in the picture alternating spinach leaves, cheese and tomato
