With fresh, bursting garden flavors, it's the perfect summer side dish or appetizer for your dinner parties! Psstt... wanna know a secret? It makes you look really fancy without trying, too! 

This is one of my absolute favorite side dishes. Although I'm not even sure why I call it a side dish since more often than once I have eaten the whole thing as a dinner in itself. I really got hooked on this in an attempt to use reduce wasting what my summer garden was producing the most of - tomatoes and basil.

Now, I know it's not summertime right now but since I'm trying to get this blog up and running (thanks to my loyal, from-the-start followers!) I'm backtracking on a few recipes and sharing all I can with you guys!

This dish only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish (I mean I even included the veggie washing time) and gets on the table in front of hungry mouths in no time. Sweet, juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese, strong herb flavors and a tangy balsamic drizzle come together in this oh-so-pretty impressive plate.
