Karl’s Spinach Side Salad

My sweet pepper and fennel soup was a bit shy on green vegetables. I did not want to add them to the soup, because it would muddle the flavors. I decided that I needed a small side salad. Some baby spinach, some sweet red onion that I happen to have on hand and maybe a sprinkle of parmesan with a balsamic/vinaigrette would be nice.

Karl’s Caprese Salad

Jan likes caprese salad, which is tomatoes, mozzarella, onion, olives and basil in a light vinaigrette. Usually I go to La Villa, a very good Italian deli in Willow Glen and pay through the nose for a very small portion. While La Villa makes a good salad I could make it cheaper and fresher. Today I noticed that we had a lot of tomatoes in our garden that were just ripe, and I thought, “Gee, why don’t I make my own?”
