Tastes Like Summer: Caprese Salad Recipe

Salad 2

It's finally summer and for me this means SALAD SEASON! It's way too hot in Florida to eat anything but salad, so I'm always looking for new ways to prep salad.  This is a fun (and pretty) version of classic caprese salad. You'll love how easy and yummy this salad is. And it's even more amazing the next day! Let me know what you guys think!
