Short of fireworks, ice cream sandwiches, and burgers, few combinations are quite as summery to me as tomatoes + basil + mozzarella. Caprese salad is just such a treat when your basil and tomatoes are fresh from the garden! My Caprese Style Summer Salad is a heartier, full-meal take on a classic caprese.White navy beans […]
It will come as no surprise to my readers that I love really healthy recipes that are also really delicious.
