I find it absurd that I love this dish so much. It’s so simple – yet caprese salad is like the perfect summer salad / appetizer for me. There are plenty of variations using balsamic vinegar or a basil pesto to dress it up – but I’m a bit of a purist with mine. I just want the basic ingredients in my caprese salad…
