Summertime Caprese Salad

Aside from the holidays, the summer months are my favorite for entertaining. Simple, fresh salads with your friends on the porch or juicy burgers for the guys by the pool.  And while no one wants to spend the warm days locked up in the kitchen, simple recipes work for us during this time of year! 

A few weeks ago, I threw this easy and fresh salad together to bring to a friend's house and it was a hit! The best part is how simple it truly was - only 6 ingredients! 

Caprese Salad: 

3 ripe tomatoes, sliced

ball of mozzarella cheese, sliced

basil

salt/pepper

olive oil

balsamic vinegar

1. Slice up the tomatoes and cheese to your liking. 

2. Add basil. 

3. Drizzle oil & vinegar.

4. Add salt/pepper to taste. 

5. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
