Caprese Salad 

When you get fresh tomatoes and mozzarella at the farmers market, you know it’s time for caprese salad. I love caprese salad and can eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I alone can go thru a whole platter and still can’t get enough of it.

 

This salad is a simple yet an elegant looking salad to serve at any party. Fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella drizzled with the sweet tartness of balsamic reduction and a sprinkle of salt and pepper is sure to make you  sink your mouth into it.
