This is my take on a traditional Caprese salad, which is made of tomato, mozzarella, basil, salt, and olive oil. This is more of a… “Ca*me*se” salad. I decided to use balsamic vinegar instead of olive oil and salt.I say this is “the most Italian thing you’ll probably ever eat” because the original dish was
