Caprese Salad

My summer garden is in full swing which means I have tomatoes coming out of my ears!!!


I know there a million ways to eat Caprese Salad, but this is how I do it!


I also planted purple basil in my garden this year and I think it is so beautiful against the bright red of the tomatoes and the milky cheese.


And you’ve got to love cute models like these! (And no she is not hurt, just playing pretend!)
