Time to use all those nice, ripe tomatoes and basil from the garden.

Caprese Salad (prep time: 5 minutes)

Per serving:

1 large tomato cut into slices

fresh basil leaves

Mozzarella cheese, sliced

balsamic vinegar

olive oil

cracked black pepper

Arrange tomato slices on a plate, top each with mozzarella and torn basil leaves. Crack black pepper to your liking and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Be adventurous and try some of the heirloom varieties of tomato.  I grew a variety called 'Mr. Stripey' with red and yellow striped fruit that had a slightly different flavor from most red varieties and almost no seeds!
