Memorial Day Weekend Recipe

I hope you had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. We spent the majority of the weekend relaxing and enjoying family time. We saw a movie, spent time with friends, made a quick shopping trip to the city, enjoyed brunch and dinner with our families and of course had the All-American Memorial Day BBQ.
For the BBQ, I decided to bring a simple tomato salad. Seriously, this salad took maybe 10 minutes to throw together.
Ingredients:
5-6 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/2 cup basil
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 clove of garlic
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, cubed
4 oz. parmesan cheese, shaved

I combined the cheese and tomatoes in a bowl. In a food processor, I combined the basil, vinegar, olive oil, and garlic to make a thick "dressing." I poured the dressing over the tomato mixture, coated everything, garnished it with a few more basil leaves and called it a day.
Although we had some sunny days, the weather this weekend was a bit un-summer like, with rain showers populating our Saturday. However, we were lucky enough to catch this beautiful, vibrant rainbow (and the beginnings of another one) after the stormy weather.

All in all, this was the perfect weekend to end a happy month and we certainly did celebrate May, as my mom's calendar page indicated.
