If “simplicity is the glory of expression” then our Crimson Tomato Caprese Sliders are a masterpiece. Inspired by the simple Italian salad, made of sliced fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and sweet basil, our arrangement features the Crimson Tomato from Lipman Family Farms. Vine-ripened and specially bred in Florida, this tomato’s highly chromatic deep red color and intense flavor is sure to become the crown jewel of your favorite recipes. High in lycopene, an antioxidant, and rich in potassium, this tomato’s health benefits abound.
Offering “the best of nature,” Lipman Produce is America’s largest field tomato grower. They are self proclaimed “freshness freaks” with a passion to deliver the very best of nature while remaining earth-conscious and family-driven. The fruits of their labor show in their Crimson, which boasts a juicy, homegrown flavor.
Enjoy each crimson slice in these delectable sliders!
TIP: Place fresh mozzarella onto paper towels to get rid of extra moisture that may cause your sliders to become soggy.
