Caprese Salad

We have a lot to be grateful for. One of the things was my daughter fell off of an ATV this weekend and got a concussion. We are so grateful for prayers and that she is doing well. She is sore but doing well.  We heard of a not so good outcome of someone else this weekend in an ATV crash. Life is so fragile. You need to love those around you every day.

 The garden has been very good to us this year. We always seem to be able to grow tomatoes the best. This year we have a bumper crop. I need to make some yummy spaghetti sauce with them. We have been enjoying salsa with them too. One of our favorite things to eat. I have always thought Caprese salads looked so pretty. I thought it would be a perfect time to make it with all the tomatoes. We really enjoyed eating it yesterday. It is so easy it also makes me feel European.  Some day I will go there. :)

5-6 sliced roma tomatoes
1 lb roll of mozzarella cheese sliced
handful of basil leaves
1/2 C balsamic vinegar
1 tsp honey
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste.

1. Arrange the sliced tomatoes, cheese and basil on the plate.
