An average dish. I didn't have high expectations, given the fact that I thought this would be very "simple" tasting (i.e. without a lot of flavor). I like capresse salad, but usually as an "appetizer" preceding a more substantial (rich) Italian dish, so the fact that it is light usually doesn't bother me. I guess I am a "meat and potatoes" gal.... I marinated my chicken breasts for about 7 hrs. in 8 oz. of Marzetti's balsamic dressing (made half the recipe for my bf and I). Also cooked chicken as directed on low heat for about 30 minutes and had no problems with dryness. Served "capresse style" - topped with a slice of FRESH mozzarella, a fresh basil leaf and a slice of beefsteak tomato, a sprinkling of coarse salt and fresh "cracked" black pepper and a drizzle of balsamic. Try this with Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus by THREDDIES (on this site) and some warm Italian bread with olive oil and fresh Parmesan for dipping. Overall good, but not great and won't make on a regular basis. Just not for me. Sorry!
