Quick and Easy Caprese

My husband is a big salad guy, but Abby and I are not. I love a restaurant house salad, but at home they never taste as good. So, Marcus ends up eating a boring bag salad with dinner most nights. The other night I switched things up and made him a quick and easy caprese salad and I think it might be his new favorite.

Quick and Easy Caprese

2 handfuls of cherry/grape tomatoes, sliced in half
1 cube frozen basil
2 string cheese sticks, cut into bite sized pieces.

Place cube of basil in bowl and microwave about 15 seconds. Mash up the basil with the back of your spoon. Add in the tomatoes and cheese and stir. Done! Quick and Easy!

We have also experimented and added a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. It all works well!
