caprese with Cucumber, Avocado & Pine Nuts

Well, it's not exactly summer here, but it was warm enough to feel like a robust salad was the perfect dinner item.

A simple Caprese salad with thick slices of tomato and medallions of fresh mozzarella, with kalamata olives, diced avocado and cucumber with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and ground black pepper, and a few pine nuts made this appetiser a meal! A little olive bread with butter to soak up the juices made this meal a treat!

It's not quite as warm over here on the East Coast, but I might just try this salad and pretend!

cookie - I have to admit, it's great to watch the garden bloom, have the french windows open and watch white blossoms blow in like snow. And it's light late, and the kids are outside rather than in....yep, happy.

Oh, man, does that ever look good! I might add a dice of cucumber this summer, too! Can't wait for those first really ripe tomatoes!
