Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love Caprese salad in the summer when tomatoes are at their juiciest and basil is bursting. This salad adds cucumber for a fresh twist and a little crunch. The tiny bit of olive oil and balsamic add a touch of tang. Perfect for a hot summer day. Enjoy this Caprese salad for a snack, as a side dish, or even at a picnic.
