This got rave reviews from a wedding shower group.Double the amount of mozzarella and definitely use the fresh or buffalo mozzarella it makes all the difference. The dressing is soooooo flavorful. I made extra maybe like one and a half times the amount called for in the recipe and used it all in the salad.
