Tomato Mozzarella Salad Reviews

  • Tomato and basil are a classic combination and when paired with fresh mozzarella you have something so simple and so delicious you could make a meal out of this all by itself The addition of good quality balsamic vinegar gives it that little added "pizzaz"- perfect served with Italian bread and a nice wine

  • Made this tonight for my daughter who is always raving about the Caprese Salad where she works and claims to never be able to get enough of it. I served the salad on a bed of fresh baby spinach and garnished the sides with avocado. I also added one clove of minced garlic to the dressing which made for a beautiful and satisfying salad. Thanks for the great recipe.

  • A lovely Caprese Salad - perfect for those wonderful summer tomatoes and garden basil. Use a good quality balsamic. I made this for Faceless Frenzy July 2012 - it had no reviews and no picture. Try it, you will love this salad.

  • This is really good with proscuitto layered in between too

  • Wonderfully simple. I even forgot to get the fresh mozzarella and it was still just as good Also, I used sweet grape tomatoes and halved them. Delish

  • Same ingredients, different presentation can boost the flavor for those who found it lacking. Only "real" tomatoes - homegrown or farmers market, heirloom preferred. Instead of "side-stacking" as shown, arrange individual slices on plate/platter and salt/pepper to taste. Top with cheese, drizzle w/oil & vinegar and garnish with torn basil leaves. I sometimes drizzle w/just the oil and "flick" the balsamic vinegar on with a pastry brush.

  • Big bold flavors in this simple salad. Use a good vinegar and you will be satisfied with this blend of flavors.

  • We love sweet onion so we alternate that with the cheese and tomato and some oregano. Yummy

  • Do yourself a favor and use a different dressing recipe. The vinegar is crazy over powering; thats all you can taste.

  • I also used slices of Vidalia Onion and a 1/2 tea of minced garlic in the dressing.

  • I subbed fresh lemon juice for the vinegar and 3 corn cracked pepper, but this is a traditional delight, especially in the cool evening after a hot summer day. Simple and delicious

  • I followed the recipe exactly as Joann Han prepared it. It is light and has a perky flavor that is perfect for a 90 degree day.

  • Perfectly simple and delicious. Paired with a glass of wine and a crusty Italian bread and you have a wonderful and quick weekday meal.

  • Very tasty I love fresh veggies and when I can get some yummy sweet tomatoes I will think of this recipe Simple and flavorful - great for a lite Saturday lunch or just a great side dish.

  • This was good, but just looking for a little more of a "pop of flavor."

  • Very quick and easy. I love making this in the summer because it is light and refreshing.

  • A simple, yet refreshing salad. Great dressing to accomodate it

  • A classic. You cant go wrong with this one.

  • I am pairing this up with homemade Calzones It should go very well. Thank you for the recipe and it is so easy to make. Much easier and less work than them calzones. lol

  • Absolutely delicious. Will definitely make this again.

  • Wife loved it. Fast and easy to make.

  • I think Ive made this 5 or 6 times this summer. Its an excellent recipe as it is written. My only suggestion is to purchase a good balsamic vinegar - it makes a big difference.

  • Very good. I used sweet little cherry tomatoes, sliced in half. Some red and some yellow and little mozzarella pearls. Very pretty and very tasty.

  • Excellent Also nice as an Italian dinner appetizer by inserting very thin sliced Genoa salami in between the cheese and tomato. I never have leftovers and its frequently requested by my guests.

  • SUPERB I eliminated the salt, instead sprinkled on some capers with their brine. This will be summer salad staple.

  • Simple, yet oh so delicious This was perfect for a nice light lunch, but would be a perfect appetizer, thanks Joann Han

  • This is a very good recipe. Roast a chicken and you will be good

  • This is a great appetizer to share or as a light lunch. I went a little less on the balsamic vinegar and was absolutely delicious.

  • Based on an earlier comment, I reduced the balsamic vinegar by half and it was wonderful. I will definitely make it again.

  • I regularly use this recipe with some additions . I double the dressing and add a clove of garlic and some fresh basil and blend with my immersion blender then serve it all over greens of your choice and add some garden cucumbers and peppers chopped small for a little extra pizzazz Presents beautifully and never disappoints

  • I liked this with red wine vinegar. Not a balsamic fan.

  • I just used ready made balsamic dressing. Fast and easy.

  • I make this all the time but add a little fresh chopped garlic to each slice of tomato and it makes this dish even more flavorful

  • Delicious recipe Made it as the recipe stated and it was a BIG hit at a family dinner. Will definitely make it again

  • Excellent

  • Next time I will cut the olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper in half. The full recipe leaves a runny mess on the bottom of the serving plate.

  • I used my home brewed apple cider vinegar, in place of balsamic which can be overpowering. Black Krim tomatoes from the garden also help with their big flavor.

  • Used sliced cherry tomatoes and I cubed the mozzarella. Same great flavors

  • I think this was good. It was very easy to make and looked impressive.

  • I have made this twice now and it is just delicious. This time I only had one tomato, but I had a whole bunch of grape tomatoes from my garden. I sliced the tomato and alternated the tomato with mozzarella slices in the middle of the plate and halved the grape tomatoes around the sliced tomato with bits of mozzarella on each half. I used aged balsamic vinegar in the dressing. Just divine.

  • I served this recipe over Labor Day, used rich, red Jersey tomatoes and picked my own basil to make the vinaigrette. It was sensational. The only change I would make is to dribble less vinaigrette over the tomato/cheese slices. I tended to use most of what I made, and I didnt need it. Also, the picture at the top does not show the vinaigrette of this recipe--it lacks the balsamic vinegar. Im sure it would be delicious as well.

  • Very easy and delicious. Love to have variety when it comes to salads to serve on the side .. Considering I made this more then once I know I will make again ..

  • Easy to prepare, easy for your guest to eat

  • I would make it again, but there was too much dressing, so i would cut the amount in half

  • This is a pretty standard recipe for Caprese salad. I like to serve it on a bed of mixed greens. If you dont like so much vinegar, use white balsamic vinegar, or just use less of the dressing. You also can just drizzle a little of the vinegar and olive oil over the salad, no mixing needed.

  • Yum

  • Yummy So easy when you grow your own tomatoes and basil :)

  • I was looking for a recipe I used to make with mozzarella and roasted peppers and basil. I used the dressing from this one reduced the olive oil and also the balsamic. I added kalmati olive( saw that in another recipe) Drizzled dressing over lightly and I like it. Will make again

  • I just used this receipe as a guide. i just drizzled a really good passionfruit vinegar and an expensive olive oil over alternating slices of tomato, basil and mozza. Used Jacobson sea salt and ground pepper.

  • Super easy to make and very forgiving. A refreshing salad while tomatoes are in season

  • Yummiest

  • I made this recipe exactly as written. I used fresh tomatoes and basil from our local farmers market, and locally produced cheese. My wife thought that the fresh basil was slightly overpowering, and left it on her plate. But, I thought it was perfect just as it is. I wouldnt change any part of the recipe. Ill definitely make it again.

  • Used all ingredients as per recipe. We loved it and do not feel the vinegar was overpowering. Using a good quality balsamic vinegar is key. Thanks for a great recipe , will be using over and over in my family.

  • So simple, and absolutely delicious This is perfect for a summer picnic. I already cant wait to make it again.

  • Used Nonna Pias Balsamic Glaze. Very good. Thank you for sharing:)
