A Delicious Summer Treat!

There is nothing better than fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella in summer. It’s so light, refreshing, and not to mention good for you!  Tomatoes have this special anti-oxidant that helps fight cancer forming cells and other diseases, and helps protect your heart. Tomatoes also help keep your digestive track healthy, and keep your skin and hair looking healthy.  Now doesn’t that make you want to go eat a tomato right now?  O.K. back to the recipe. Did I mention there was ciabatta bread (my weakness) involved?
