Kittencal's Tomato-Mozzarella Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette

This is a must-make with your summer's crop of tomatoes and fresh basil --- prepare the vinaigrette firstly as it needs a few hours to blend the flavors together and may be doubled if desired --- to take this to yet another level use fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese --- I have served this wonderful salad to a crowd of people many times in the past and also placed Italian cold cuts all around the edge of the platter :)

Took this treat to a party tonight, and everyone absolutely loved it. I really wasn't sure about the garlic and honey in there, but it turned out really good. Thanks Kitten for another great recipe that have my friends thinking I'm the grand master chef!

Kittencal, you've done it again. Simple ingredients, yet the finished product is extraordinary. The ratio of ingredients in the dressing is "right-on".....perfect for the tomato-mozzarella salad. Can't wait to make this again when I can use the tomatoes off my plants. Another winner.
