Warm Mozzarella Salad

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by CHRISSYG

The fresh mozzarella for this salad is warmed in a hot oven for a short time, giving it this soft, luscious heavenly texture. The vinegarette and kalamata olives are a nice foil for the richness of the cheese. Buon Appetit! Oh the credit for this goes to a recipe card from Safeway... the fine print says "try-foods, int'l".. I've made a few adjustments

Lovely salad!!! I used a much higher ratio of pine nuts to the bread crumbs 'cause that's what we like. My SIL has already asked me to bring it for Christmas Eve.
