NOTES

Heirloom tomato varieties are open-pollinated meaning that you can preserve the seed and later on plant them. They are grown seasonally meaning that you will not find them in the market throughout the year. You therefore have to make good use of them while they are still in season. The tomatoes come in different colors and shapes from brown, yellow, green and sharp red.
Yellow heirlooms are a bit milder than the tart, intense reds and the greens have a light, zesty bite. The darker varieties have more savory qualities. The heirlooms are also costly than the other types of tomatoes. Their skins bruise easily; therefore, you should handle them with a lot of care. They also have a short shelf life. The heirloom tomatoes are the best for the Heirloom Tomato Caprese salad.
Whichever, way you use them, either in salads or for cooking, heirloom tomatoes come with lots of health-enhancing properties. They are rich in potassium, known for lowering the blood pressure as well as folate, which is good in reducing the incidences of heart attack. The mineral is also good in preventing cancer, are good for the skin and help to protect sunburns. The tomatoes are equally a good source of vitamin K necessary for strong bones and teeth.
Heirloom tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which helps nourish the adrenal glands and reduces stress. Tomatoes which are grown organically like the heirloom tend to be higher in lycopene, an antioxidant that helps in eliminating the free radicals. Heirloom tomatoes are also an excellent source of vitamin K, necessary for healthy bones.
Heirloom Tomato Caprese salad is best when all the ingredients used are still fresh. You should also feast on this wonderful salad while it is still fresh to enjoy its rich taste and flavor.
A good Heirloom Tomato Caprese salad should have the cheese evenly sliced to meet the thickness of the tomatoes. If your mozzarella cheese is made up of big chunks, you need to drain them and then slice them uniformly. To get the right thickness of the mozzarella, when purchasing, look for the packages marked with pre-sliced but not sliced. It helps in getting the slices perfect
When making the salad, you should avoid sprinkling sugar on the tomatoes as you are destroying their natural taste.
