Follow Your Heart Insalata Caprese Salad

An Italian cuisine inspired recipe, that will entice your taste buds. This is a refreshing salad dish, great for starters, side dishes, or for pairing with meals. I use Kumato heirloom tomatoes because they offer a richness in their flavors. I may be bias, but I feel like they are the best ones, next to organic. As they are picked right at the peak of their maturity, they offer us an abundance of earthy nutrients. They contain vitamin C, which is great for tissue repair and vitamin K, which is known to reduce blood clots. Ultimately, I think it would be a great idea to encompass the kinds of foods in our diets that contain healthy amounts of nutrients like this.

Healthy Tip: Shop for your heirloom tomatoes either at a local farmers market (support our local farms), or you can find them at a natural food store.

Warning: Anyone who has health conditions; dialysis patients, potassium-restricted diets should steer away from eating tomatoes.
