Caprese Salad

I love Caprese salad, so simple and yet so delicious.  The key to this salad is finding bocconcini that has a nice flavour.  I bought Saputo from the deli counter at Loblaws and compared it to the pearl sized ones in a tub (can’t rember the brand) and it was a world of difference, the deli one was so much better.
