Summer brings so many great things – fireflies, watermelon, beach days, sun tea, thunderstorms and…
I wait all winter long for them… for the traditional Fierstein cheese and tomato sandwich (Grandma makes it best), for homemade pico de gallo, for cherry tomato snacks.
One of my favorite ways to eat them, though, is in a simple caprese salad. For this one, I used yellow heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil (grown in the backyard, of course. Okay, that’s Mom. We all know I’m not a gardener). A little drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a few cracks of pepper.
And don’t forget the bread. You want to soak up that deliciousness!
