i’ve always wanted to have a little garden out back. i would go and pick fresh basil and tomatoes, and then come inside and whip up a delicious little salad for dinner. finally having a space of our own, this little dream of mine is totally doable. with all the craziness of moving and renovating right now, though, the prospect of producing a flourishing garden is daunting … and nearly impossible. i have no idea where to begin! but my goal is to learn. maybe next summer.
in the meantime, i’ve been hitting up the farmer’s market bringing home fresh tomatoes and basil. here is a recipe for the classic caprese salad with a little twist. it’s super easy, but looks super fancy, making it great salad to take to a dinner gathering.
