The tomatoes are ripe and it is time for Caprese Salad. This is a 5 Minute Prep Salad. Seriously! We are having the Froehlich family reunion this weekend and picking fresh tomatoes and basil is part of the fun. We are celebrating summer in full swing here and nothing is more special to me than being with family and eating fresh food, especially from the garden. We have family in from all over the country, but we are grounded in our appreciation of vine-ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil leaves, topped with fresh basil pesto, reduced balsamic vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. Bon Appetito!
