Summer tomatoes are the star of any Caprese Salad, which in turn make you a super star at your next dinner gathering. A visit to the farm stand for selection of a variety of gorgeous tomatoes is the place to begin. Add fresh basil leaves and the best fresh mozzarella cheese you can find to complete the list of ingredients. With barely a recipe at all, this composed salad comes together like a beautiful painting of color.
A quick note on summer tomatoes: I highly recommend that your store the tomatoes at room temperature, and never place them in the refrigerator. Cold tomatoes quickly lose their quality and turn to a mushy texture.
