    fresh mozzarella, vine-ripened tomatoes with sea salt, pesto balsamic vinaigrette, fresh cracked pepper. the taste was so simple and fresh, but intense. the soft mozzarella soaked up the flavors wonderfully.

      pesto on caprese?
      recipe: mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, salt, pepper (if you like it), extra virgin olive oil: that's all; but yours looks good! ;-)

      thanks joyce, this quickly became my favorite salad too.

      sorry angel! the pesto really made the dish. and the bowls i scored while in bangkok.

      thanks ann, i had a bit of trouble lighting this shot, but finally got something that worked :)

      thanks achiam.. i thought these would be perfect for appetizers, salads or amuse bouches.

      thanks steve!

      thanks applemint, likewise (on making people hungry) :)

      thanks austin, the pesto seems to pack more punch than basil leaves alone.

      thanks daisyboo, silkegb, delcio, FIS, adrienne, pi c's, divinemissm!

      giacomo, yes i know a traditional caprese calls for basil leaves, but try it with pesto balsamic and you'll never want to go back!

      mm, it's not safe to eat fresh mozzarella? i assume in the US it's pasteurized.

      thanks elan, post yours as well :)

      i assume it would be too but i was told to stay away from soft cheeses. at this age, i thought i'd play it safe. :)

    12. speedM 86 months ago | reply

      you should try making those bowls!

      mm, yeah, most cheeses here have to be made with pasteurized milk. most artisan cheese makers outside the US do make cheeses from raw milk because the taste is much better.
