Caprese Salad

Italian Caprese Salad

Last weekend, I went on a dinner date with my friends. We enjoyed Caprese salad as part of our meal.

Wednesday morning, I was craving it again; I can’t get enough these days! So I stopped at the co-op to get some fresh mozzarella (already had the tomatoes and basil) Wednesday morning and went to work. I brought my fresh, all-natural Caprese salad to the cabin as a perfect complement to the chicken and steak kabobs, juicy watermelon, and corn-on-the-cob. Life doesn’t get much better than this.
