Caprese Crescent Rolls

Caprese Crescent Rolls

These Caprese Crescent Rolls come together in a snap and make a delicious summer appetizer that’s packed with flavor!

I’ll never forget the first time I tried caprese salad. I was just out of college, at a friend’s apartment, and she had a gorgeous caprese salad on the table amidst other gorgeous appetizers. It was made with the most delicious red tomatoes and drizzled with balsamic vinegar….and from the moment I tried it, I knew it was a salad for me.

It’s hard to believe I was in my 20′s before ever having experienced the caprese flavor combo….especially considering the fact that my kids have all been enjoying it since birth! Or close to it. I guess it fits right in with the fact that they like Thai and sushi and tapenade…..not exactly your standard kid fare.  I guess that’s what happens when a foodie raises kids!
