“Using only the ingredients in the well-known caprese salad (plus a tortilla), Ray comes up with a quesadilla that you will love eating. I made this is a dry skillet (omitting step 1) heating each side of the filled tortilla till it crisped up and showed brown spots. Ray uses quarters of these quesadillas as appetizers. I ate mine as lunch!”
