Basil + Toddler's Pincer Grasp = Caprese Salad!

How does your garden grow?  Are you ready to pick anything yet?  We noticed the basil was hot to trot, so we got out the little colander-bowls I bought years ago, gave one each to Daddy and to Alleluia, and sent them out foraging.

Toddlers don't need anything but a good pincer grasp to pick the leaves (hat optional).


...and Daddy's!


Caprese salad--otherwise known as tomato, mozzarella and basil with a vinaigrette--has been popular with our kids in the summer months.

For an example of the many Caprese salad recipes out there, check out Rachel Ray's Caprese Salad.
