Today the Horticulture class made some delicious spicy herb marinade which we poured over fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. We ate it with fresh bread and crackers – not one tomato was left uneaten!
We used our fresh grown herbs for the marinade (thyme, basil, and rosemary). These very herb boxes are for sale at our Farmers’ market. $5 empty, $10 full of herbs. You can have an herb garden in your kitchen and make this tasty treat!
It was nice to have the students help dice 2 pints of fresh cherry tomatoes in half.
Red pepper flakes gave the marinade a spicy flavor!
Then we poured our mixture over the tomatoes and mozzarella
After letting it sit and soak in the flavors we served our mozzarella and tomatoes.
After our hard work, we had a horticulture family meal and enjoyed the fruits of our labor. (pun intended).
