"What's an Italian summer without this? Tomato, fresh mozzarella, kalamata olives, and fresh basil salad."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

You cannot go wrong with this salad. A wonderful twist on Italian Caprese Insalata. I always make the standard but now will add this to my repertoire. Thanks for the idea!
Made this for the first time today. We had company who are health conscious people, and they loved that it was simple yet had such wonderful flavor. We as host also thought that this side was spectacular and can compliment many main dishes. I will be making this regularly, and especially now that our tomatoes have have started to ripen on the vine! Thanks for the recipe Apricot20
I made this with black olives and it was superb. Thanks for the recipe.
What really makes this recipe is the addition of olives and let it sit at room temp for the full 15 mins before consuming...Tough to do because it looks so good but it does make a difference. Thanks for sharing.
OMG OMG OMG!!!
This recipe is the perfect example of eating vegetables in season and using the best ingredients you can afford! Here in NJ, it's not tomato season yet but, once our tomatoes come in, we eat this salad with and without the cheese every day! And, if you can, splurge on some really good olive oil--a little goes a long way!
This recipe is the perfect example that if you have fresh ingredients, you don’t need endless steps and/or ingredients to make something delicious. This is simply delightful and I'll be making this often with the tomatoes from the garden.
it was good....needed more basil and pepper....probably be excellent on bread and broiled
