"French" Caprese Salad? Cherry tomatoes, bocconcini and blue borage flowers



I can never get tired of Caprese, the classic tomato, mozzarella and fresh basil salad that represent Italy both in taste and in colour. But just for once, and just for a change, when I picked my cherry tomatoes from the garden I also got a few borage flowers and thought that they may look pretty (and yes, just in case you ask, they are edible), and pretty they did look too! And because this looks more like the French flag than the Italian one, I just called it "French" Caprese.  And I guess it could be a good salad for the 4th of July too if you are in the US. What do you think?

    1. Ciao Barbara, guarda, il tuo commento c'era ma due giorni fa ho dovuto mettere la moderazione dei commenti perche' sto avendo troppi spam e non riesco più a starci dietro. Una vera seccatura.
