    cajunhippiegirl's Note:

    Homegrown tomatoes, fresh mozzeralla, fresh herbs, Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar. It doesn't get any better than this. The addition of the red onions & sliced olives just seem to enhance the basic Caprese Salad Recipe. Great Lunch now that the tomatoes are in season and readily available. Have with some fresh french bread with some herb butter & something good to drink and "it's all good" :-) I got this recipe from All Recipes and tweaked it a bit. Posting here so I know where it is because it is the closest I have ever came to duplicating this dish the first time I had it.

      Ah, even the McDonald's in Italy offer capese salad! In my family, we substitute lemon for the balsamic, for a less sweet version. If no fresh oregano is available, dried Italian seasoning crushed with your fingers will do.

      Very nice flavors! I made as directed but added some pepper hard salami. This made it a meal! Just right for a warm summer night. No cooking and light. Next time, I am going to add artichoke hearts. That is the beauty of it--you can add what you like or make as is. Thanks for the wonderful salad (meal). I will be making this again and often!
