The weather is already starting to feel chilly here in the mornings but we had to share this summer recipe with you before fall officially starts!

I love a good caprese salad any day and I since I love testing out new recipes, I decided to combine these flavors with another favorite of mine – an omelet! Omelets are full of protein and are such a great way to sneak veggies into breakfast. They are also easy to make and when they taste as delicious as this caprese omelet, you’ll want to make it over and over again!
