Caprese Salad + Cucumbers (using up my garden veggies)

9 Aug

 

Do you have a garden?  If so this post is for you… If not, this post is for you too because I know you have a grocery store or farmers market…. And really you’ll need a grocery store any ways unless Mozzarella grows in your garden :).

We were heading out on little picnic with some good friends of ours right before we left on vacation.  I wanted to make sure I used up our veggies so they wouldn’t go to waste while we were away.  Basically I just made a Caprese Salad and added cucumbers.  Nothing fancy, but it was really yummy!

 

Here’s the Scoop:

INGREDIENTS

Tomatoes

Basil

Mozzarella (I used Mozzarella Fresca)

Cucumbers (optional)

**  You really can add what ever you want

Balsamic Vinegar

Sugar

Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper

DIRECTIONS:

Mix everything together in a big bowl.  I did end up cutting my cherry tomatoes and cucumbers.  In a separate bowl mix up a balsamic vinegar dressing (I use 1/4 cup Olive Oil, 3 Tablespoons Vinegar, a dash of sugar and salt and pepper).  Poor it over your salad and TADA…  Yummy!

    I loved this salad! It was light, yet filling and delicious! It was even better the next day. Thanks, Shan!
