Caprese Salad


Every month the Center Cafe highlights a new featured menu item and this month, as we get ready for the fall weather, is apples. All our culinary classes in September will feature apples recipes as well - from Apple Stuffed Pork Loin to Apple Cider Chicken to Tomato Apple Jam - it all sounds delicious!

For this month's newsletter, we wanted to stay on trend and are featuring a Caprese Salad with - you guessed it - apples!
