Bacon Caprese Salad

Well, after 6 years of living in this apartment I currently reside in, I have made the decision to move. My lease is up May 1, I hope to new moving into a new place. My decision was actually made very easily for me. Over the last 2  1/2 years, this complex has been going downhill very badly. You see, we got a new manager, and well, let’s just say almost everyone that lives here, that has lived here for 4 years or longer thinks this complex is taking section 8, when in fact they do not. Yes, she let it get that bad.

In Late September, she decided I was no longer allowed my cats, after having them for 5 years. So they live with my mom in Pittsburgh. Then the dishwasher motor went and it is going on 5 months and they have not replaced it. It was in October I decided enough is enough, I was moving out. One of my co-workers, they been nickel and dime him over the rent, and even he said he wants out. They adding fees that make no sense, personally I think the manager is pocketing the money. What I mean is, the toilet seat breaks, they tell him it would $10 to replace it. It is their toilet, why is he paying to replace it. It not like this a small complex, there is 500 people that live in 4 buildings here. When you tell one the workers a complaint, they will whisper to you, “Tell the management company, they have no idea what the manager been doing.” So I have had enough, So the search for my new place begins!

Bacon Caprese Salad is a simple salad made with bacon, perfect for the summer months. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen.

As I mentioned the dishwasher is nonoperational, so this weekend I had a lot of cooking to do, so I am someone, I really hate doing dishes by hand, so after my 10th load of dishes, I just wanted to make a recipe that is light, and did not require many dishes. I have been craving Caprese salad. I love the tomato, basil cheese combo. It, to me, is fulfilling. What I find interesting about Caprese salad is you know why it basil, tomato, and mozzarella? It is to represent the Italian flag. Just a little bit info I picked up.

Anyway, I admit, I am on a bacon kick right now. I go through phases like that with recipes where I tend to favor an ingredient. Right now it is bacon.  Originally, I saw a tomato bacon salad recipe, that inspired me to change that up into this caprese salad.  It turned out to be a something I really loved, and satisfied my craving for caprese salad.
