Caprese Salad…The fast way!

Hello my friends!

I have loved all the beautiful tomatoes the summer has brought us! We are coming down the stretch of the tomato season though, I am afraid. Too bad..boohoo…but it is all good! Soon enough fall veggies will blanket the shelves at the market and we will love them all!

I had one big bowl of cherry tomatoes to deal with today…but no lettuce to sneak under them, so I raided my basil patch and my ‘frig and just threw together a bowl of everything I could find…easy and so quickly thrown together!

A few basic ingredients made this come together quickly!

Caprese Salad…the Fast and Easy Way!

cherry tomatoes

fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes

fresh basil, torn

balsamic glaze

a drizzle of olive oil

freshly ground pepper and salt

red pepper flakes, optional

Combine all of these delicious ingredients together and serve! Easy and fresh! See you in a year, summer tomatoes!

What did I love about this recipe? I used a bunch of tomatoes that were begging to be eaten and some fresh mozzarella that was doing the same! So easy and always so delicious…plus…any excuse to use balsamic glaze is a hit here!

What didn’t I love about this recipe? Well, it was kind of my swan song to the fresh, summer tomatoes…boohoooooo
