Simple Caprese Salad

My garden is bursting with tomatoes, basil and all kinds of goodies.

I am not sure why, but for some reason, red tomatoes just don’t want to grow for me. I can grow more yellow tomatoes than I will EVER know what to do with. However, I can’t seem to grow a red tomato to save my life. Maybe they are secret enemies and the yellow tomatoes are somehow poisoning my red ones.

With all these yellow tomatoes, my fresh basil and the homemade mozzarella that I made. (Yes, I finally did it!) I needed something yummy to make with all of them.

Of course, Caprese is a favorite of mine. however, it is really hard to make a typical Caprese with these tiny, yellow tomatoes. Enter this simple Caprese salad into the picture.
