Caprese Salad with Shredded Basil and Cherry Tomatoes

I saw the need to harvest even more of the bushy basil crop from the porch yesterday afternoon.  The the real reason was, there was a chunk of fresh mozzarella in the fridge that needed to be used and some cherry tomatoes that were in search of a home.  What resulted could have been considered a basil salad of sorts.  It was full of summer flavor with the basil acting more as an out-and-out green than a garnish.  The flavor was deliciously overwhelming.

Here’s to a summer full of these flavors…
