These are fresh tomatoes I just picked from my garden. Right now I have fresh basil growing like a weed and tomatoes on the vine too! Oh yum are they so good! Yes I love tomatoes… You can make so many things with this amazing fruit. One of my favorite dishes is the Caprese Salad (pronounced CAH- prey – say) I think I like it because it is so easy and fast to make. I ate this salad with almost every meal I had when I was in Italy. You can make this in 2 seconds. (Okay maybe a little more time than that) It’s so simple, just cut the tomatoes, add a drizzle of some great fresh pressed olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, fresh pepper, fresh basil, and sliced mozzarella. Duh… anyone can make this, did I really have to type the recipe?  I always add the vinegar though. Seriously I could drink vinegar… almost… well yes I do! I love that stuff too so I add it to this salad and just about any salad I make. Adding the vinegar is my twist on the dish… gotta have it! Oh my goodness my mouth is watering now… enJOY!
