    Delicious and Light

    Theresa P from Torrance, CA

    I love this recipe and it's always a big hit with our guests because it looks so good and colorful and is nice and light. If I have time, I will make my own pesto though with basil, olice oil and pine nuts.

    Too much

    Giuseppe from Feasterville, PA

    What makes Caprese so wonderful is the delicate layers and delicate flavors. All and each special together and alone.In Italy less is more,and fresh rules. This although adequate, is not Caprese at it finest.

    Insalata Caprese is a staple for Italian dinners in our house. Adding the flavorful pesto raised the bar for an already tasty side!
