Traditionally, caprese salad recipe always comes with the balsamic glaze.  Making balsamic glaze means extra time and extra sugar intake.  This version only sticks with balsamic vinaigrette in order to enjoy the fresh ingredient flavors instead.  Besides, it is very flexible that you can switch up the ingredients here and there and make it more convenient for you.

I served this easy tomato mozzarella salad first when we had our weekly family dinner gathering.  My sister-in-law fell in love at the first sight. 


CHEF NOTES

Any tomatoes work in this recipe.  I highly recommend Vine, Roma or grape tomatoes. 

I used low moisture mozzarella cheese before which will need some time for cutting.  However, it is more economical.  Mozarella Pearls (the one in bite size) is a bit pricier, but less work.  Pick the one works best for your budget and time.

Fresh basil leaves come into a relatively big package that it will take a while to use them all.  Dry basil is a great alternative.  If you choose to use the dry one, add one heaping teaspoon and give it a try first.  You can always add more if you want to.

Side note: Balsamic glaze is available in the store if you really want to use that instead.
