      Magnificent! Infusing the olive oil with the garlic, pepper and rosemary makes all the difference in the world in this kind of salad. I may never make a plain caprese again! The oil was perfect to dip some crusty homemade bread in. The only thing I would add would be kalamata olives. Thanks for a great recipe!

      Just so good. It was simple, fresh and flavorful. It was so nice at the cookout especially with the fresh basil and tomatoes. I thought the infused oil just made this a stand out.
