I made this after watching Giada make it on Foodnetwork and it was so delicious,so easy, and doesnt leave you feeling hungry afterwards like most salads, its very filling. I usually add a little pepper flakes to give it a little spice. Very yummy i've eatin' it 3 days in a row for lunch.

In Italy I think this is called a "Caprice" Salad. It's one of our favs and yes - fresh Mozzarella and Fresh Basil is a must. Best in the summer when all those vine ripened tomatoes are in season.

One of my favourite recipes! I didn't use balsamic vinegar- I prefer to let the other flavours shine through. Wonderful just as it is!

Yum! Made as part of dinner last night. I stacked sliced tomato, chopped basil, mozzarella slices and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pepper. Very good! Thanks for posting.

My favorite tomato dish! Used home grown basil, really set it off. Fantastic!

Summer on a plate!! We eat this often every summer. I agree, fresh mozzarella is a must. I never thought of drizziling with balsamic. I'll have to try some that way next time.

Yum! I made fresh Mozzarella today (30 Minute Mozzarella) and made this salad to go along with some stuffed pasta shells with white sauce. It was sooooo good. :)

Yum! What an easy, summery, flavorful salad! Especially so, because I had home-grown tomatoes and basil! I love the presentation, too. I did add the balsamic vinegar...nice!

I've been making this salad for several years. It's especially wonderful when I can get my hands on some vine ripe tomatoes at the peak of the season. I also like to use fresh Mozzarella -- and I never omit the balsamic vinegar.
