I had to omit the capers cause they turned out bad. I used a yellow tomato from my garden. It was great. DH loved it. Thanks Dawn :) Made for Healthy tag game

Made this for one! It was fabulous with homegrown tomato and freshly picked basil! Caprese represents summer to me and this is very delicous! I did not use the capers because I do not care for them! Thanks for posting! This was great! Made for Home Garden and Farmer's Market Event in the Photo Forum!

I make this often, and it is often served with Italian dishes at my house, and sometimes as an appetizer. No matter what way I have it, it is always well received and loved!
