Fresh is best

Another treat for summer - Caprese Salad.




I got the tomatoes from a friend last weekend (thanks Susan!) and they are just so delicious and begging to be pared with fresh mozzeralla and the basil from my new plant. I ended up eating the whole plate myself for lunch yesterday and it was goooood.

Caprese Salad (for 1 - well, for me anyway)

1 fresh tomato, sliced
1 bunch basil leaves (appx 1/4 cup chopped)
4 oz. fresh mozzerella cheese, sliced
olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Arrange tomatoes and cheese around a plate, sprinkle with chopped basil, drizzle with olive oil and add salt and pepper.

Delish!

Can pretty much take or leave tomatoes, but those granola grabbers, oh my! And the blackberry slab . . . Yummy
