Caprese Salad

Caprese Salad is my all time favorite type of salad.  You can't beat fresh tomtatoes, basil, and mozzarella.  I've seen quite a few recipes for this salad and ordered it at a variety of restaurants.  The recipe below is my favorite way to eat this salad.

Caprese Salad

3 Vine-Ripened Tomatoes sliced in 1/4 inch thick slices
1 lb of fresh mozzarella sliced in 1/4 inch thick slices
15-20 fresh basil leaves
1/2 bag of Spring Mix salad
Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Cracked Pepper
Dash Salt

Scatter Spring Mix salad onto the serving plate.  Top with sliced tomatoes followed by basil leaves.  Pour small amounts of Balsamic Vinaigrette over the salad depending on your tastes.  Add slices of mozzarella and top with a dash of salt, some cracked pepper, and a sprinkling of oregano.  Finish with a drizzling of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
