Super simple and fresh.

Sometimes I make something just because I have ingredients and I want to experiment.
We were having a warm day and today’s harvest from the garden is cherry tomatoes and basil.
I only had a handful of tomatoes, not enough to feed 4 people.
But I had my heart set on Caprese Salad.
Bit of digging in the fridge yielded a cucumber and one ball of mozzarella.

I liked it, they thought it was good.

Summer Salad

1 cucumber cut small
8 ounces cherry tomatoes
6 basil leaves, cut small
1-2 balls mozzarella, cut in chunks
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs lemon juice

Combine cucumber, tomatoes and basil
Mix olive oil and lemon juice, taste if it is too tart add a bit of olive oil.
Salt and pepper to taste
Add cheese to vegetables and drizzle the dressing over salad.
Toss lightly, that cheese wants to fall apart.

A perfect salad for the 4th of July or any BBQ.
