To date, the best caprese salad I have ever eaten, in my entire life, was at a hotel restaurant in Pennsylvania. A few years ago I had taken a road trip with two of my mushroom colleagues to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania for a meeting. Seeing it was a 9+ hour drive, we decided to stop halfway and grab a bite to eat. We ended up at a very random hotel restaurant just off the highway. The name of the hotel escapes me… even the name of the restaurant escapes me… but what I will never forget is how incredibly good their caprese salad was. The tangy balsamic was complemented perfectly by the sweet, juicy vine ripen tomato, while the mild, soft mozzarella added a nice texture.
Inspired by the faint memories that tingle on my taste buds all these years later, I whipped up these quick and easy Triscuit Caprese Bites this past weekend for my nephews birthday party.
