This is one of my favorite summer recipes - Caprese Salad. Simple and elegant, and so easy to put together.
I had this for the first time in Lucca, Italy when I was in grad school, and I must say that real Italian tomatoes and cheese take this dish to a different level altogether. But until I get back there, I'll make caprese salad with local ingredients - it's still yummy.
1 package grape tomatoes
1 package buffalo mozzarella
Wash tomatoes and basil, drain cheese and place in bowl. Toss with olive oil and spices. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar if desired.
