Comments
I suppose you could use regular, grocery store-type mozzerella in this, but using fresh makes all the difference in the world. Same goes for the basil -- use only fresh. This is also excellent if you dice the tomatoes and mix in with the olive oil, etc. I then use it as a topping on fresh-baked focaccia bread, topped with a piece of fresh mozzerella and a fresh basil leaf. Excellent appetizer.
