Volunteer Caprese Salad ~ ~ Those days when the garden is so beautiful, when the lotus blooms, goldfinches at the feeder. Clouds that look like Titian painted them. You know, when things are truly awesome. The volunteer tomatoes. I smile every time I see them, and then again when I eat them. A solid juicy tomato, the perfect amount of acidity, a delicate skin. Do you really need a recipe: cheese, basil, olive oil, salt, pepper, sunshine, rain and a volunteer tomato. Yea, there must be a god.
