Caprese recipe with Rosso Bruno tomatoes mozzarella fresh basil

This Caprese recipe features Rosso Bruno tomatoes. In the winter months, these small tomatoes are the closest thing to garden fresh I’ve ever tasted. They are about the size of a nectarine, or a large plum. Bursting with fresh from the garden flavor, they are delicious!

Caprese (pronounced ka-pray’-she) is a classic appetizer made with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil on bread or toast points.

These Rosso Bruno tomatoes are hard to find, but if your grocer carries them, you’ll love them.

A natural hybrid, you can read more about these at the grower’s website:

  1. I just ran into these yesterday at the grocery store and now kind of bummed I did not pick them up. Oh well another trip won’t kill me.

    Thanks for the awesome tips on the crab cakes! Definitely good to get the real scoop on how they are done.

    p.s. love the hot sauce idea. Huge hot sauce fan here.

  2. @Jeff – they really are packed with flavor… it’s amazing. They taste like fresh out of the garden tomatoes. We buy ours at the Harris-Teeter Grocery store.

  3. I just bought some today. Will try them in salad with dinner tonight! Will get back to you!

  4. Great, Judy. I hope you love them as much as Wifey and I do!
    Sadly, they are “out of season” down here in Maryland for the winter. Or at least Harris-Teeter has stopped carrying them for the time being.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you!
