“Too many tomatoes, too many to see, too many for grandpa and grandma and me…Grandpa began with a hand full of seeds, and sun, soil and water, as every seed needs…” We were given a children’s book called “Too Many Tomatoes” and it is the cutest rhyming book, and needless to say, my LB LOVES it!!
Well, its tomato time around here…my four giant tomato plants are full of tomatoes and just starting to ripen! I absolutely love home-grown tomatoes, they are so much better than the ones from the store, it’s almost like eating candy for me. Of course, I always love to make fresh salsa and pico de gallo, but one of my favorite tomato recipes is a Caprese Salad. It’s fresh, flavorful, and it doesn’t get any better than fresh sweet cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and simple balsamic vinaigrette.
My husband doesn’t care for tomatoes the way I do, which means I get this one all to myself! It’s great for parties and outdoor potlucks, and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked for the recipe. It’s definitely a winner, and I’d love to share it with all of you.
