Simple Summer Fare

A few weeks ago, I had a delicious Heirloom Tomato Salad at Foode in Fredericksburg.  After finding some gorgeous heirlooms at the store, I attempted my own version at home. 

Heirloom Caprese Salad

1 medium heirloom tomato
5 heirloom cherry tomatoes
fresh mozarella
basil leaves
olive oil
Balsamic glaze
sea salt

1. Slice heirloom tomato in quarter to half inch slices. Cut each cherry tomato in half.
2. Slice mozarella in similar slices to tomato. Arrange cheese and tomatoes on plate. Sprinkle with basil leaves and a pinch of sea salt. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic glaze.

Yum.  Serves 1.

Fresh tomatoes are one of my favorite things about summer...and there's still plenty of time to enjoy them!

P. S. I'm kind-of in love with that picture.

Speaking of pictures, I discovered a fun crafting daily deal site a few weeks ago: The Plaid Barn.

They have a fun mix of little items for sale with good prices & great shipping.  I am excited about the stamps I ordered there recently...they should arrive this week!  Right now The Plaid Barn is hosting a giveaway for a Fuji Instax 7 Camera & film. I've wanted one of these cameras for awhile...and thought I'd share with you, in case you'd love to win one too!

That is a beautiful picture! I love the black backdrop, it makes the white and red "punch." I made a tomato salad here too, but it wasn't nearly as gorgeous as that, though it was yummy!
