Insalata Caprese, or tomatoes and cheese if you want to keep it simple.


When I think of summer, garden tomatoes are what come to mind.  I got these beauties at the farmer's market and they were sooooo good. To make a good caprese salad, slice tomatoes and mozzarella to similar thicknesses, arrange them on a plate and then top with salt and pepper, fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste.  Enjoy on a patio with a dry glass of white wine.  Pretend you're in Italy. It's delightful!
