(ca-prey-zay!) caprese salad.

To market, to market to buy a fat pig,
home again, home again- jiggity jig...
Instead of a fat pig, I found some pretty little tomatoes in red, yellow, and orange.
They screamed CAPRESE! (ca-prey-zay!)
.

Have you ever eaten a yellow tomato? I hadn't.
Have you ever had caprese salad? I love it.
Did you know I could drink balsamic vinegar by the shot glass? I could!
.

This is my own kid friendly version of caprese.
Pan fried chicken, tomatoes, basil, and instead of fresh mozzarella, I buy it in a block. My kids like it a bit better.
Cut and assemble. Drizzle with oil and vinegar, salt and pepper. Add a piece of crusty bread to soak up the juices. Mmmmm!
Who says kids only want to eat chicken nuggets and corn dogs? Not I!

that looks DELICIOUS.
my girly-girls would love it too. minus the chix. they just aren't much of a meaty eater. and i agree. a good balsamic vinegar is so yum.
thanks for sharing!

Not a big fan of fresh tomatoes, but I'd take a big hunk of that crusty bread to dip in the oil and vinegar any day :)!

The 4th of July pictures are gorgeous! SOoooo magazine-worthy!

I love caprese salad! And I share your affinity for Balsamic Vinegar as well. I put in on everything. I think my kiddos would like this.;)

Yum!!!!!

I'm waiting patiently (NOT!) for our first round of fresh home grown tomatoes.

In this blog post http://thelopsidedhouse.blogspot.com/2009/05/alfresco-dining-at-bristling-acres.html I posted a recipe for an awesome crusty bread. Now crusty bread is super easy to make at home!

I'm sooo jealous your kids will eat it!!! Going to the farmer's market tomorrow :) I've never had a yellow tomato--I don't think anyway!!! It sounds as though we need to have a group session for all of us who loooove balsamic vinegar so much :) Who knew??

I've been a lurker of your blog for a long time and have NO IDEA how I came across it. Love your style though. I've made this every day for the last week. My 2 year old LOVES it. Mind if I post a link to this from my blog to share with my friends? Thanks for the idea.
