caprasesalad2I LOVE making this Caprese Salad.

It’s so easy and great to take to a summer potluck.

We had a summer get together the other day with our Bible study and it was a big hit..

If you want to make it a bit fancier.. skewer a tomato, a basil leaf, and cheese on a fancy toothpick.. then drizzle with the glaze!!

You can serve it with or without the Balsamic Glaze.. it’s delicious either way!!
