Caprese Salad

What you will need:

Tomatoes, home growns taste best
Fresh Basil leafs
Whole Milk Mozzarella
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Kosher Salt and cracked Black Pepper to taste

Get creative in how you serve it.  Stack up alternating slices of cheese and tomato, dice them up, or fan them out on a plate; doesn't matter because the taste will be great.  For the picture you see, I was serving just me (this was my lunch, perfect on a hot summer day).  I sliced up one tomato, a few slices of cheese and a small handful of Basil leaves.  I sprinkled with oil & vinegar, and salt & pepper, and viola!  Caprese Salad!

I love Caprese with fresh Pita bread. Nice pictures.

If we didn't have it to make with home grown tomatoes and basil from our garden, I don't think it would be near as good!
