Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a nice fresh caprese salad! A caprese salad is a salad with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil and every time I have one I can’t help but think that cheese is always better when melted so why not enjoy it and a hot melted caprese dip? This dip is quite literally a caprese salad with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil pesto that is baked until the cheese is all melted and ooey and gooey and oh so good! Enjoy this hot melted caprese dip as a snack or even as a light summer meal with toasted baguette, crackers, chips or veggies for dipping and I’m certainly not going to tell anyone if you skip all of that and just eat it by spoonful like I do!
