I found this to be a easy way to prepare a caprese salad for a large group instead of doing individual salads as I usually do. The ripe olives added a nice touch. I used cherub tomatoes and sliced them in half instead of the plum tomatoes. Very pretty dish and more importantly delicious. volunteer field editor

This was ok. I prefer my tomatoes and mozzarella to be marinated in the balsamic vinegar and oil. It gives it more flavor that way.

Just perfect! I used cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. I did add the balsamic vinegar, and it was so good with the fresh herbs.
