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!
Caprese Salad…the Fast and Easy Way!
fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes
fresh basil, torn
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
