Salad Caprese


8 oz. fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes

(I found it already formed in to little "pearls" which worked very well)

3-4 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped into 1 inch pieces

a scant, scant 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil (I used canola oil)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

salt & freshly ground black pepper

2 or 3 or 5 leaves fresh basil, chopped

Combine all ingredients and gently toss.
