Caprese Six Layer Dip

Summer has finally hit us in Columbus, Ohio.  As in 90 something degrees.  I'll take it.  If only the air conditioning would be consistent at work, life would be great.

With the elevated electric bills, I have no desire to turn on an oven or stove.  I pulled this recipe with a wink and a nod to the skinny 7 layer dip. Just add lemonade or a light beer.

Serves two for a light dinner or take as a dip:

·         1 avocado chopped
·         2 tomatoes chopped/ seeds removed
·         ½ beans (black or cannellini)
·         ¼ cup salsa
·         Fresh Mozzarella (or goat cheese), ½ cup cubed
·         2 TBS fresh herbs chopped
·         1 TBS olive oil

Layer beans, avocado, tomato, olive oil, cheese, salsa.  Serve with chips.
