Delightful Caprese Salad


Author Notes: After visiting the farmers market, I had more heirloom tomatoes & cantaloupe than I knew what to do with! I LOVE caprese salad & this is a delightful summer twist. It's hearty enough to be a light evening meal but also pairs well with anything you're grilling. Enjoy!NashvilleFoodie
