Have I got a treat for you. I know my last blog said I would follow it up with a Beat The Heat Part 2 blog, but I’ve got something that’s too good not to share here.
My cousin Carol is an excellent cook. I’ve never had a bad meal that she’s prepared. Since she always seems to come up with something delicious to bring to our holiday meals, I was inspired to reach out to her for a cool summertime recipe…and she sent me a gem.
Let me turn this over to cousin Carol.
“There’s nothing better in the summer than a Caprese Salad. It’s so much fun to “decorate” the plate with tasty ingredients. I like a variety of tomatoes (including heirloom), mozzarella cheese, and basil. Sometimes I simply drizzle with Olive Oil, but I really like Balsamic Glaze.
“Along with a slice of Italian bread, a Caprese Salad is a satisfying lunch or a first course with a light summer meal.”
I couldn’t have said it better.
Cousin Carol also sent along some photos of what I call her works of art – Caprese Salads almost too good to eat. Almost. They look cool, refreshing and simply delicious.
Hmmm…I know I have tomatoes and basil on hand, and I think there’s a ball of mozzarella in the fridge…excuse me, my rumbling tummy tells me I’ve got a Caprese Salad to make!!
What are some of your favorite summertime meals?
Drop me a line and share your thoughts. I’d love to hear from you.
