Caprese Salad

We LOVE caprese salad any time of year, but summer is the best! Serve as a side salad or with some crusty bread.  Add some sliced cantaloupe melon wrapped in prosciutto and it is a perfect meal.

Caprese Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • fresh tomatoes (any size) sliced
  • fresh Mozzerella cheese sliced
  • fresh basil chopped
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  1. Mix olive oil, vinegar, and garlic in a small dish.

  2. Try to use cheese that is similarly sized to your tomatoes.  If you are using large tomatoes, alternate layers with slices of cheese.  If you are using small tomatoes, slice the tomatoes in half and dice the cheese into smaller pieces.

  3. Drizzle with the oil mixture and top with basil.  Add a little salt & pepper and enjoy!

1 Pan Chicken Dinner

I love a meal with easy cleanup!  For even easier clean up, line the pan with foil.  The flavors of the chicken, potatoes, beans and tomatoes all blend together in this tasty dish.  You don’t even have to peel the potatoes or cut the tomatoes.
