Didn't bother making these as towers but instead just put on a big platter and served it that way. Beautiful presentation. Used blue cheese crumbles instead of gorgonzola. I think I did put too much cheese on this one but loved the fact that two cheeses were used. The goat cheese made the gorgonzola creamier tasting. Very simple to prepare. You will look like a gourmet chef after making this one. Read More

I am not a fan of strong flavored cheese so prefer fresh mozzarella instead for the traditional caprese salad flavors. Loved the presentation though very impressive. Read More

This was so delicious. The only change I made was to use garlic-infused olive oil. It looked beautiful too. This is quick easy and elegant enough for company. Thanks so much! Read More

I love this recipe! But I used slices of fresh moz instead of gorg and goat cheese (although I will definately try those sometime...sounds heavenly!) and also use roma tomatoes as they are not very juicy when making small appetizers. Yummy! Read More

LOVED IT! I subbed fresh mozzarella for the gorgonzola cheese since I prefer a lighter cheese. Used lots of basil and balsamic too. It was gorgeous and refreshing. I will make this again. Read More
