    Vanessa7's Note:

    Courtesy of KCStar (my local newspaper). I love Caprese salad....specially the one at Macaroni Grill. I will be making this soon!!! The only thing I would add is balsamic vinegar...but that is because I LOVE IT. It's optional!!!

    1. 1
      Cut tomatoes into 1/4-in. slices and arrange on a plate, alternating tomatoes with mozzarella slices.
    2. 2
      Scatter basil ribbons over the tomatoes and mozzarella.
    3. 3
      Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      NOTE: I would add a bit of balsamic vinegar when I serve it on my plate because it's like the one at Macaroni and Grill.

      I concur with the suggestion to add some balsamic. I put a 50/50 combination of balsamic and EVOO into a jar with a pinch of salt and 1 tsp brown sugar. Shake well in the jar, and then drizzle on the salad. Delicious!!!

      Excellent summer salad. I used fresh heirloom tomatoes. I used white balsamic vinegar and in my opinion, it should not be optional. It makes the salad very tangy and tasty. You really only need about 1 tbsp of olive oil. Loved the fresh taste. Thanx!

      I love this salad. But instead of using a Balsamic Vinegar, I just added a few sliced Kalamati Olives. Yumm! Thanks for a great recipe.
