The Cheese Shop

One of the best parts of visiting my Dad in Wellesley is getting the chance to go to The Cheese Shop. It is a small family run shop that has an amazing selection of cheeses. The owners, and their sons, are wonderful...always more than willing to spend time letting you taste what ever you want.

When ever we are in town we always make a trip there to get a selection of cheese and other goodies to go with.

Last night with the cheeses, I made a simple caprese salad with heirlooms.

2 heirloom tomatoes
1 ball fresh mozzarella
1 small bunch basil
salt and pepper

Slice the tomatoes and cheese and layer on a plate.

Rough chop the basil or tear and place on top of the cheese and tomato slices.

Drizzle generously with oil and a touch of Balsamic then season with salt and pepper.
