There is no simpler (and perhaps no more delicious) summer salad than Caprese salad: tomato, mozzarella, and fresh basil, with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil if you’d like. Yesterday, we discovered that one of the best CSAs in our area — Heidi’s Homegrown and Organics — had opened a new retail location close to the College of William and Mary. We were delighted, because their old location was quite a drive from our house. We happily loaded up on homegrown tomatoes and sweet corn. (My pregnancy tomato aversion is finally gone, and just in time for prime tomato season! Hooray!)
When we got home, we were hungry and overjoyed to find that we had the fixin’s for Caprese salad. So juicy, so tasty, so perfect for a summer afternoon!
