Tasty Tuesday ~ Good Bye Summer with Quinoa Caprese Salad

Welcome to Tasty Tuesdays everyone! I'm Laura from Food Snob St. Louis with an end-of-summer salad recipe for you. Although I am very ready for fall, I love summer. The reasons I love summer, are the very reasons I miss it so much once it's gone:

1. Losing track of time at the pool and staying all day long.

2. BLTs.

3. Finding refuge in the air conditioning at the library and picking out books to read on a trip (or books I intend to read).

4. Sunsets at 8 p.m.

5. Babies living in onesies.

6. Fresh produce everywhere.

7. Tomatoes.

Really, my list could be tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes. It's a simple pleasure of life to be able to slice a fresh, homegrown tomato, sprinkle it with a little salt and just enjoy in its perfect, sweet, juicy state. Even though I enjoyed sipping coffee in my sweats (hello 50 degrees in the a.m.), I mourned the passing of summer a little bit this week. I comforted myself a little bit with my twist on a traditional caprese salad with the last of the seasons fresh tomatoes.

I'm slowly working my way through our 5 pound bag of quinoa, so naturally it was a needed ingredient!
