"Fresh mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, and basil leaves drizzled with a balsamic-olive oil dressing. Caprese salad is an ultra refreshing Italian summer salad made with ripe tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and flavorful basil that adds a touch of sweetness to the dish. What’s more appetizing than a fresh caprese salad in the hot summer months when the tomatoes are at their ripest? This colorful dish originates from Italy and gets its name from the island of Capri. It’s jam-packed with vitamins and minerals for a delightfully nutrient-dense salad featuring mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. "
