Salad Caprese

Salad Caprese is my favorite salad. Fresh mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar is the perfect combination of flavor. Today, at Trader Joe's I discovered Perlini, which are tiny balls of fresh mozzarella. One serving is 28 "cheese pearls" and has only 60 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. Not bad for cheese. I made my Caprese Salad with two tomatoes, sprinkled with salt and pepper, fresh basil and balsamic vinegar. I never use olive oil in salad dressing anymore.
