This beautiful shot and recipe were a team effort. Kelly Schaefer created the recipe and styled the dish, Adam Finkle shot the photo, and Brad Mee wrote it into the Summer 2007 issue of Utah Style & Design.

And now I’m adding it to the web. Enjoy.

2 heads butter lettuce
2 cups heirloom cherry tomatoes
Basil, finely chopped
