Strawberry Mozzarella Salad

I wanted something light for lunch. Something different. So I had this traditional Mozzarella dish, "Insalata Caprese", but with strawberries. Yumm.

Mozzarella-Strawberry-Basil Salad

• Mozzarella - the high quality stuff
• Several strawberries - I think I used 6
• Fresh basil
• Olive oil

It couldn't be more easy. You just slice the mozzarella and strawberries. Then you compose the salad: Alternate slices of mozzarella with sliced strawberry. Sprinkle pieces of fresh basil over the salad. Add freshly ground peper to taste, and finally drizzle on some good olive oil. Serve straigh away.

What a great idea and beautiful picture! This seems like it would taste amazing, maybe with a little balsamic vinegar, too. Thanks for the idea!
