Caprese salad

A simple, yet amazing summer salad.  When tomatoes are amazingly ripe and the basil plant is growing out of control, there’s only one thing to make – caprese salad!  Now that our tomatoes in the garden are finally ready to eat, we’ve started making this regularly again.  This is one of our all-time favorites, and it’s basically a make-as-you-go recipe – use as many tomatoes as you’d like, and go from there!  Enjoy!
