Caprese Salad (Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil)

This is a delicious salad that you can make with minimal preparation with ingredients that's usually laying around the kitchen.

  • Chopped basil
  • Sliced mozzarella
  • Sliced tomatoes
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Just mix the ingredients and you're done! The amount of oil and vinegar you put is up to you (go lightly on the balsamic if you've never tried it, it's really strong). Cubing the tomatoes and mozzarella and eating with a spoon would be easier than how I prepared it though.

Looks great! Have you ever tried this with large Bocconcini? I feel like it would be a nice cheese to compliment the the taste of both the tomato and the balsamic vinegar.
