How to make caprese salad - it's a light, delicious summer salad. Some feel that balsamic vinegar should be left off -- it's a personal preference, and I'm happy with this salad either way. Be sure to use the freshest possible buffalo mozzarella, basil and tomatoes.
rgfoley ,Great light salad. I included balsamic vinegar and loved it. Quality mozzarella is a must!
jokoboco ,It may hit others' taste buds but I didn't care for it. The fresh basil was too overpowering for me.
ajstallones ,Made this with dried basil rather than basil leaves. It was okay, I need to try next time with better ingredients.
gisesl ,It is even better if Buffalo Mozzarella is used. Try to find it in the supermarket. That's the original Italian recipe.
virginiad2003 ,Being from NYC I guess I am spoiled and do not buy prepackaged mozzarella but other than that this is a very good tasting recipe.
sammyp96 ,DELICIOUS! how i made it: baked tomatoes with shredded mozzarella chz, chopped green peppers, and put oil/vinegar mixture on it :)
elvins ,I did a variation as a salad with cheese and tomato chunks. 86 the balsamic vinegar for a clean light flavor.
worldweissweb ,I could eat this every day. I often use Newmans Own salad dressing. I soak the cheese and tomatoes in the "Balsamic Vinaigrette" salad dressing or their " Olive Oil and Vinegar".
promfh ,While this might not be the "authentic" version it's very tasty and absolutely simple to make.
