On the Menu: Summertime Caprese Salad


I can’t begin to tell you how many caprese salads I’ve had throughout the past few weeks. When I walk into the grocery store all I want to cook with are the delicious vegetables that are in season – Eric is wondering where the meat is. Last night, while cooking dinner for a girls night we made up this summertime salad. Nothing was left on the platter – it was mouth-watering! Bonus: it’s so simple to make.


Bon appétit friends!
