Didn't bother making these as towers but instead just put on a big platter and served it that way. Beautiful presentation. Used blue cheese crumbles instead of gorgonzola. I think I did put too ...

I used fresh mozzarella cheese & substituted red wine vinegar in place of balsamic. Marinated 3 hrs. Very strong basil taste.

I am not a fan of strong flavored cheese, so prefer fresh mozzarella instead for the traditional caprese salad flavors. Loved the presentation though, very impressive.
