Caprese Salad with Little Gems Lettuce

This was a new one for me : Little Gems lettuce. I'm a fan. I love these tight blossoms of edible goodness. There were at least three in our Fogline Farm CSA box today, two green and one burgundy. Lovely.

I used the oregano and purple Little Gems lettuce from the box in a colorful Caprese for dinner tonight.

2 C ciliegie mozzarella
2 C heirloom cherry tomatoes, some halved
1 Little Gems lettuce head, torn into bite-sized pieces
1 T chopped fresh oregano
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground pepper
olive oil

Place all of the produce in a salad bowl. Dress with a splash of olive oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. This was a great dish paired with my Warm Brown Rice Salad and a fresh pear. Dinner's ready!
