Easy Summer Caprese Salad Recipe

Are you looking for the perfect dish for that Summer picnic? Well, my easy Summer Caprese Salad might just be what you are looking for!

The other night Hubby and I were discussing how crazy life has gotten. As you all know, my brother moved in with us last year to attend college here in San Antonio so we officially have a house full of eight people and a dog. Add on school, work, soccer, swim, and cheerleading and life can get ahead of us. Now, this all sounds fun and dandy but the thing is that sometimes we need to stop the clock and just spend time together, especially Hubby and I.

Since getting out for a date night is not always an option sometimes what we like to do is put the kids down for the night, then head out to the backyard for a little late night picnic. It is a chance for us to just talk, listen to some music, dance if we want to, and enjoy some food together. One of our favorite picnic dishes is my EASY SUMMER CAPRESE SALAD. Easy Summer Caprese Salad

Why is this a favorite? Well, it is my favorite because it takes, um, maybe five minutes to throw together, and the longer it sits in the fridge the better it taste, so I can make it sometime during the day, then when we are ready for our picnic, I just grab it from the fridge, grab some fresh bread and voila.. the perfect dish for a romantic picnic. Summer Caprese Salad with bread
