Easy summer recipe: caprice [caprese] salad or sandwich

[updated 6:22 PM: I stand corrected...it's caprese not caprice. I even looked it up which goes to show you that you can't trust everything you google. Thanks, Ann!]

I'm not much of a gardener but each year we plant lots of tomatoes and basil (along with cucumbers). All summer long we make caprice pasta salad and sandwiches. It couldn't be easier and the kids love them (they actually beg me to make them). By the end of summer, the kids have had their fill and friends are tired of us bringing these dishes to parties, so we retire the recipe until next summer!

fresh mozzarella
tomatoes
basil
olive oil
salt/pepper

For salad add your favorite pasta
For sammies use yummy french bread or sour dough

You can also try adding flavored olive oil! Enjoy!!
