Caprese salad

Good ol' caprese salad. Nothing but slices of tomato, layered with fresh mozzarella and basil, drizzled with good olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

But there's one very important point about this particular caprese salad: I grew those tomatoes. And the basil.

I've always wanted to have the caprese-salad-making tools at my disposal--but in previous gardening efforts, the tomatoes were cherry tomatoes, or the basil didn't come up, or there just wasn't enough to go around.

But I made that caprese salad for four adults for a dinner party. That's a lot of tomatoes and basil.

And, really, does anything taste better than a tomato fresh out of the garden, still warm from the sun?
