Italian Caprese Salad


2 vine-ripened tomatoes (with stems)
2 balls fresh mozzarella
2 Tbsp Litehouse® Instantly Fresh Basil
2 fresh basil leaves for garnish
1/4 cup Litehouse® Balsamic Vinaigrette, or 
Litehouse® Red Wine Olive Oil Vinaigrette





Slice each tomato horizontally into 5 sections. Slice each mozzarella ball into 4 pieces. Place the bottom piece of a tomato onto a plate and top it with a piece of cheese and a basil leaf. Keep layering until you have reformed each tomato ending with the stemmed piece. In every other layer, sprinkle Litehouse Freeze-dried basil herbs. Drizzle Litehouse Balsamic Dressing over each tomato. Roll basil leaves up and slice thin (to look like confetti), place on top as garnish.
