Caprese Salad!

I buy Buffalo Mozzarella at Costco, if you can't find it they also have a few different 'fresh' mozzarellas to choose from, just make sure it's fresh and has good flavor.  Find your favorite tomatoes; heirlooms are good but expensive.  I usually buy tomatoes from our local farm stand right around the corner.  They're picked at the peak of their ripeness, organic, and local!  The other key ingredient is a really good balsamic vinegar.  In this demo I used a Fig Balsamic vinegar that is outstanding, or you can 'keep it real' and not use any vinegar.  A few drops of extra virgin olive oil, some salt and pepper...and dig in!!!!!  Enjoy the video...special thanks to Leo for his commentary :)
