The weather has been strange, one moment sunny and then rainy again, and I needed a colorful salad to keep me happy! So here is a Caprese with bocconcini, and I used cherry tomatoes, beef tomatoes and yellow tomatoes, plus green basil and purple basil. And a few very young leaves of cavolo nero from the garden :-). Drizzle with olive oil, add a pinch of salt, and the sun is shining!
I have prepared my reading deck, with flowers and all...
And cut the lavender to dry for scented sachets… but now it is raining again… never mind! Spring in Auckland!
