The weekend is approaching folks! You know what that means… get yo’ food on. Well it does for me anyway. Ahh, I missed my calling… a restaurant critic would have suited me just fine.
If you are like me and the rest of the East Coast, you know it is hot as all get-up. I am opting for a popsicle or two for dinner. Bring on the banana flavored! And, the naturally cold-blooded body of mine is all like, “why are you not shivering and what is this thing you call sweat?”
Therefore, while Baby Lo and I stick to each other the last thing I want to do in the evening is turn on the oven or stand behind a stove. I mean, please! So, I convinced Nathan that one of our favorite appetizers would totally be an acceptable side dish to our BLT’s. Because again, I am not making myself more miserable in this heat and he knows I would be completely okay with a Popsicle for dinner, so he goes along.

I almost feel bad posting this recipe. Mostly because it is so easy, you probably think, umm really?
Slice one tomato into 1/2″ slices. If you can go with a fresh garden tomato! Place the sliced tomato and sliced Mozzarella on a plate alternating each. Add the sliced red onion and fresh basil. Season with sea salt and pepper. Finish with drizzled Balsamic Vinegar. Grab a fork and dig in!
