Tomato Mozzarella Salad Recipe: Caprese With A Twist (PHOTO)

And forever change the way you eat this salad.

We're big fans of many dishes that come via Italy, and the tomato mozzarella salad recipe known as caprese is one of our favorites. The caprese salad is a simple dish, made up of sliced tomatoes topped with sliced fresh mozzarella and green basil, then drizzled with a nice fruity olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It's delicious and perfect; or so we thought until blogger The Party Dress completely reinvented it. And now we can't imagine the tomato mozzarella salad recipe any other way.

Working in food we've definitely seen our fair share of caprese salad reinventions, but the way The Party Dress put the tomato mozzarella salad recipe together -- making it a hand-held and portable caprese -- is one we won't be able to stop making. Get The Party Dress' caprese salad recipe.
