So romantic and elgant;) This also makes a great first course with some crusty Italian bread and red wine or champagne.

This was a huge hit at a dinner party last night. I did modify this slightly for personal taste--I added 2-3 TBSP of fresh minced basil, diced the mozzarella, and served it with slices of baguette as a sort of fruit bruschetta. Wonderfully mellow flavor!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the mozzarella into 1/2" thick slices; arrange in overlapping slices on 4 salad or dessert plates.
  2. Refrigerate.
  3. Toss the strawberries with the sugar in a bowl and set aside to meld, about 30 minutes.
  4. Spoon the berries and their juice alongside the cheese; drizzle both the cheese and berries with the olive oil, then the vinegar.
  5. Serve immediately.
