Caprese Salad

You can use regular mozzarella cheese, but the flavor will not be as enhanced as when using fresh soft and milky mozzarella balls. The latter is what makes this salad. In Pensacola I find mozzarella balls at Joe Patti's and the Navy Commissary. Wal-Mart carries mozzarella brades, which are OK to use. You can find the balls at any Italian store. Enjoy!
