Caprese Salad

The first time I had caprese salad was when my uncle made it for our family last year. I didn't think it'd be much - I mean, it's tomatoes and vinegar. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted it. I love caprese salad because it's a simple, summery dish that's delicious and guilt free - not that I usually feel guilty about anything I eat.

  • Tomatoes
  • Balsamic vinegar/vinaigrette 
  • Cheese (mozzarella or feta) 
  • Fresh basil 

1. Dice the tomatoes.
2. Chop up the basil.
3. Toss tomatoes, basil, and preferred amount of cheese together in a bowl.
4. Top with balsamic vinaigrette.

I had five diced tomatoes and half a cup of balsamic vinegar and I know there will be a lot left over. Less is more when it comes to vinegar! If the vinegar is too tangy, feel free to add some sugar.
