My favorite part of summer are the tomatoes. I LOVE tomatoes. Ever since I was a toddler, I’d always ask for more tomatoes at dinner time. Raw tomatoes of course!
This summer I wanted to have fresh basil and tomatoes around, as the store-bought kind usually turns black right away, and we go through tomatoes like there’s no tomorrow.
Fresh basil and tomatoes spell summer, and that means endless Caprese salads!
That’s it! When we went on our honeymoon in Italy, I fell in LOVE with aceto balsamico tradizionale di Modena. It is made from grapes that are cooked and aged in wood barrels. (As a wine lover, this makes my heart pitter patter). It is a rich, velvety, semi-sweet and thick vinegar that is delish! Order some on Amazon. I promise you won’t go back to the “water” stuff in the grocery store. Enjoy!
