This simple tomato and mozzarella cheese salad is nutritious, delicious and esthetically pleasing. Said to have originated on the Isle of Capri, Caprese salad is red, white and green- the colors of the Italian flag. In this recipe, each slice of tomato is layered with ingredients and can be plated as an individual serving. The original recipe uses olive and salt; however, the variations are endless. I prefer to top it with a sweet balsamic vinegar as in this recipe, or even a balsamic reduction if I have the time to reduce down the vinegar.
