Basil from my garden

Basil from my garden

While I love the change of seasons I hate that I have to harvest all of my basil, or else the leaves turn yellow and tasteless.

My tomatoes are pretty much done so I had to buy a couple of heirloom tomatoes from the supermarket. Also picked up a chunk of fresh mozzarella.

This could have been my last summer salad - we are well into October after all. I do feel lucky to be in Northern California where I can still harvest basil in October.

I like to serve my Caprese salad over a bed of organic mixed greens. Makes me feel like I'm eating more greens... and I guess I am! :-)
