What's for lunch?

Today I thought I would share one of my favorite, quick and easy lunches.  The inspiration for this dish came from a trip my hubby and I took to Italy several years ago.  My favorite time of the day while there was sitting down to a light lunch alongside the water's edge, sharing good conversation, and drinking a glass of wine.  Lunch consisted of a Caprese Salad-fresh mozarella, tomatoes, basil, a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar served with a bit of Prosciutto and a slice of crusty bread.  I love recreating this dish at home...brings back great memories.

Fresh Mozarella-sliced
Tomatoes-vine ripe sliced if in season, but any will do (I had grape tomatoes on hand the other day-so I halved those).
Fresh Basil-torn
Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar-drizzle
Salt and Pepper-to taste

Serve with a roll-up or two of fresh Prosciutto and a slice of crusty bread.


Happy Wednesday!!  It is a nasty rainy day here in Georgia!
