"This tastes like the salad that is served at a famous Italian restaurant chain in my area. It's perfect with fresh loaf of crusty bread. For the best flavor be sure to use fresh whole-milk mozzarella it puts the packaged varieties to shame. You can find fresh mozzarella in Italian delis, gourmet markets, cheese shops and some grocery stores."

So Good!!! Using fresh picked tomatoes and basil from our garden really make this dish. A summer long favorite at lunch or dinner.

Use fresh ingredients...especially the mozzerella, and seed the tomatoes so it's not a wet mess.

This was a great salad. I messed up and got shredded mozzarella without thinking, but it still turned out great! Rave reviews all around!
