Divine. This is the recipe to use the GOOD balsamic in. I had a lot of beautiful fresh basil so I placed the salad on basil leaves rather than lollo rossa, a type of red butterhead lettuce. I recommend using only fresh mozzarella. I found Ciliegine to be just the right size combined with the figs. This will be the next dinner party salad for sure.
