We love a simple-to-make rustic tart here at ELE, and this one is no exception. Taking the very best of the Italian Caprese salad and encasing it in a delicious buttery pastry makes it perfect to be enjoyed at any time of the year. Of course, in summer when tomatoes are at their juiciest and fresh green basil is in abundance, this tart is perfect for a casual summer lunch served with a simple green salad and crisp white wine. In the cooler months we love to serve it with a side of peppery rocket leaves tossed in aged balsamic vinegar and a glass of rich red wine.
This tart is beautiful served warm, however it is also delicious the following day served cold or added to school and work lunchboxes.
