As this weekend is the unofficial start of summer, I knew it was time for one of the things I fell in love with last summer in Italy.
One reason I adore summer is that you can take three ingredients(mozzarella, tomato, and basil) and cover them with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper then you have insalata caprese – a fresh, simple salad that makes me want to catch a plane across the pond. A little balsamic vinegar doesn’t hurt anything either. I can’t wait for the tomatoes to grow in our garden, then I’ll just need to buy the mozzarella.
YAY for a three day weekend. I’m sure I’ll be doing some exciting things. Are you doing anything?
