Who doesn't love a fresh Caprese salad? It's a gift from your garden saying thank you for all your hard work and tender loving care you've given it all spring. The fact is that we are Jersey and WE are the real deal when it comes to Jersey tomatoes. Oh, they are just so delicious! Fresh off the vine, sliced with a little sprinkle of S&P Yummmm.

It's still a few months until the "goods" are ripe and ready to pick, but Tomatoes_0001

we've been pretending since last Labor day, and have made due

with what's available, so lets use what we can until then. 

1 pound Marinated grilled chicken breasts

2 avocados (sliced)
2 ripe tomatoes
1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese1 1/2 ounce bunch fresh basil leavesbasil
1/4 cup good-quality olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar (or use

 a balsamic reduction if you prefer)
Salt (to taste; sea salt or kosher salt)
Pepper (to taste; 

Fresh basil is just amazing, it's aromatic. It delivers a distinct delicious flavor. Basil is pretty easy to grow. A little pot in out on the deck with some sunshine, water daily and your efforts will be rewarded in abundance.

Fresh cracked black pepper will be best)
