Fresh Tomato and Caper Salad

I visited Syracuse NY (my hometown) over the weekend. I loved seeing my mom, dad, Tony (brother) and Becky (sister in law). We had a very nice time. The night before I left, we had dinner at Tony and Becky’s. I wanted to help out so I made apple crisp and found this easy recipe in Food and Wine magazine. I saw the bowl in Becky’s cabinet. It was so colorful and the perfect size. It was a bowl Becky’s mom also loved. I was happy to be able to use it for this colorful salad. 🙂 Oh, the salad was awesome and super flavorful. Simple and Delicious too! 😉

2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
