Fresh mozzarella with sun-dried tomatoes

A lovely mini version of the Caprese salad meaning "Salad of Capri". A simple Italian salad, made of fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, seasoned with salt and extra-virgin olive oil. It is made to resemble the colors of the Italian flag: red, white, and green. Beautiful and delicious.
