I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. The light dressing and onion didn t hijack the delicate flavor of the mozzarella. I used fresh mozzarella balls. It certainly makes a beautiful presentation. Thank you Pat for another great recipe. Read More

The dressing is excellent! I am a big fan of balsamic vinegar so I was surprised to like this so much but it was such a light, flavorful dressing that it allows the Veggies flavors to pop. Note: You can adjust the tomatoes, cheese, and onion to your liking (mozz balls or cubed and cherry or grape tomatoes, etc) Read More

I have made this several times now and I always get great compliments on this recipe. The first few times I did not have fresh basil so I mixed ground basil up with the olive oil and poured it over everything. It's works great both ways. Read More
