Caprese Salad

This is one of my favorite snacks/small meals. It's very nostalgic for me because that's what I had for dinner on my 16th birthday at the Caroline Country Club. My mother made it this weekend, and it was so delicious that I wanted to share the recipe with all of you.

The ingredients for Caprese Salad are pretty much always the same:
-Mozzarella Cheese
-Some sort of oil

But they can be in different forms. Most of the time, you will find large tomato slices, basil leaves, and slices of Mozzarella laying on top of one another in a pattern, either in a circle around your place or in a tiny tower; then it's drizzled with (usually) balsamic vinegar. My mother prefers to use cherry tomatoes and tiny balls of Mozzarella. She uses fresh basil from the garden, and then pours balsamic vinegar over the mixture (you could use olive oil if you prefer).

So refreshing, yummy, and healthy!
