Hello! Hello!

I’m officially in a tomato bender.

My cherry tomato plants are going crazy and I stopped by the Farmer’s Market to get a few “big ugly tomatoes” a.k.a. heirloom tomatoes.  As much as I have a green thumb, I’ve never had luck growing big tomatoes (they always seem to get disease before they are done growing) so I buy a few of the good ones each year.  I love the funny colored, lumpy heirloom ones that are big enough to have a one slice tomato sandwich.

But I digress, I am easily distracted when it comes to talking about yummy summer produce.  Today’s salad, Tomato Avocado Caprese brings together all things wonderful about late summer.

The combination of fresh sliced tomato, creamy mozzarella, smooth fresh avocado, fragrant just picked basil and peppery arugula is perfection on a plate.

I toss the arugula with a simple olive oil and top the entire salad with a balsamic glace.  It’s really one of the those no cook meals that you dream about on a cold February day.

So enjoy this goody while it lasts!

I’m already starting to see apple and pumpkin stuff on my Pinterest and the thought makes me cringe.  I adore summer and I definitely haven’t had enough of all things summer!
