Each year since I started my blog, I've put together some combination of my favorite summer salad, Caprese. This year it makes its appearance as a very easy to put together appetizer I recently took to a barbeque. I found some wonderful long toothpicks at an Asian store and simply alternated yellow and red cherry tomatoes along with a half small ball of mozzarella cheese and a basil leaf. I combined 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar with 1/2 cup of good olive oil and some salt and pepper to taste and drizzled if over the plate of appetizers. It turned out to be a beautiful plate of summer! I've also included some lovely sights from my brother and sister-in-law's wonderful yard where the barbeque was held.
