Summer!

Is there anything that speaks of summer quite so eloquently as Caprese Salad?  I love this time of year when the tomatoes are in full ripe flavor and infused with color.  Soon, I’ll be picking them from the yard but in the meantime farmers’ market produce from east of the mountains will do.  The basil is mine though. 
 
Not only does the salad speak of summer with it’s flavors and colors the preparation is the epitome of easy.  Just slice a tomato or two, add some sliced fresh mozzarella, top with basil, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, and then drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and a little balsamic.  I used a chiffonade of basil here but sometimes prefer the full leaf for this salad.
