Top-ranked recipe named "Caprese Salad (Mozzarella, Basil, Tomato)"
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.
"Made it tonight with fresh yellow tomatoes, which are in season right now here in the Northwest. Pretty delicious, and colorful. As always, the key for me with this recipe is to get water-packed fresh buffalo mozzarella, if you can. The quality of the cheese and the ripeness of the tomatoes make all the difference in this simple salad."- stevemur
Slice tomatoes about one quarter inch thick and arrange on a plate.
