Caprese Salad is a simple salad made of sliced, fresh, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil, seasoned with sea salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  The key to success with this salad is to use the very best ingredients possible.    When you use tomatoes at their peak, good quality mozzarella, a high quality balsamic vinegar and fresh picked basil, it’s truly a special dish. by Charlotte Magnolia

When perusing Pinterest and blogs, I come across and bookmark a lot of great-sounding recipes to make at a later date; some indiscriminate point in the far-off future. And then there are the recipes I know I must make immediately. This grilled balsamic squash with tomatoes and garlic scapes definitely falls into the latter category. by jeanine

Caprese Salad:  fresh basil leaves, fresh tomatoes, and fresh (soft) mozzarella cheese. [I would use a cheese substitute because I'm vegan] Slice the tomatoes and cheese and stack (tomatoes first, cheese on top) with one or two basil leaves. Arrange like patties on a plate (3 or 4 per person) and sprinkle with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. by rochelle
