I love the freshness of tomatoes and basil. Put it together with fresh mozzarella and a balsamic drizzle and it is irresistible to me. I ate this all by myself and I’m not ashamed to admit it! This simple Caprese Salad is a great addition to your picnic table.

While this is nothing new to anyone, I am sharing it because I want record of it here as something that I love!  After all, my motive is to have this blog full of recipes that I love and want my boys to have at their fingertips should they want to make something I have made and enjoyed!  Christopher has taken advantage of this already as I know he makes my “Grumpy’s Gone Bananas” banana bread 🙂
Caprese Salad
So quick, easy and simple to toss together and put in your picnic basket to enjoy on a picnic, at the beach, or take to a party!  I love how summer brings out the “fresh” desire for produce!  When your looking for fresh with some great flavor for a salad, this is definitely the way to go.
