Just to prove the point that you NEVER know what your child will eat, I present to you Alexander’s favorite salad:
Never woulda thunk it – but then again, he is changing every single day…..
3 ripe tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
1 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices
20 to 30 leaves fresh basil
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Coarse salt and pepper
Layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a large, shallow platter. Drizzle the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
