Caprese Salad

There’s something about the combination of fresh picked tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella.  Add some salt, pepper, olive oil, and perhaps a drizzle of balsamic and you have heaven on a plate.  It’s a main dish, side dish, appetizer, maybe even a dessert for some.  Anyway you serve it, Caprese is easy, beautiful, and delicious.
