garden fresh




We made a caprese salad for dinner using the first tomatoes and the basil from our little garden.  Oh, my, goodness!  It was ridiculously delicious!  I've never had a better caprese salad in my life.  I think the secret was the garden fresh tomatoes and basil.

Here's the recipe!

Place tomato and cheese slices in on plate in an alternating pattern.  Spread basil leaves on top of the cheese and tomatoes.  Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
