Happy Hump Day everyone. Only a few more days till the weekend! I have nothing planned and I’m really looking forward to it! I have not slept well so far this week – tossed and turned ALL night since Sunday so I can’t wait to sleep in a little Saturday morning. I’m trying to come up with a way to keep my eyes open all day – any ideas?!
Last Sunday I put together a casserole to reheat later this week and I think tonight is the night. I will share it with you in a few days! But first up – Caprese Salad with Roasted Red Peppers and Balsamic Drizzle!
I absolutely love this salad! The roasted red peppers make all the difference. You can make them yourself, or you can get assistance by using a jarred kind from the store, which is what I did. Make sure to get roasted red peppers in olive oil with garlic. I just realized I didn’t take a picture of the kind I got! I will try to get one and post soon so you can see.

Mozzarella Cheese Ball
Roasted Red Peppers in Olive Oil with Garlic (Or just roast your own!)
Salt and Pepper
Rinse the tomatoes and basil. Pat basil dry.
Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
Layer tomato slice, mozzarella slice, and basil leaf. Add roasted red peppers to plate, around the layered tomato, mozzarella and basil.
Season very lightly with salt and pepper, add a light drizzle of olive oil and then top with a balsamic reduction drizzle.
Go here to see how to make balsamic reduction.
I used fresh basil from my garden! Exciting stuff :)
Make this salad ASAP as it is the prefect summer dish!
I’m off to a full day of work and will be working even harder trying to stay awake all day.
