A very quick and pretty dish - the colors of the Italian flag. Can be made with either very fresh mozzarella or bocconcini (fresh mini mozzarellas). My mom used to make this all the time. I don't personally use the salt, but I do like lots of freshly ground pepper on mine. I also like this with oregano. Feel free to experiment! Posted for ZWT 2006.
