I don't know about you, but I need easy quick meals and side dishes. I'm a time-starved person with a very busy life. With that in mind, I created this quick and delicious Caprese salad that not only is a cinch to prepare but looks so pretty as well. In fact, I served it recently to rave reviews. You could easily add some grilled shrimp or chicken and serve it as an entree. I do recommend tossing the dressing about 30 minutes before serving it so that the bocconcini absorbs the dressing. I also recommend adding the chopped basil right before serving so that it isn't wilted.
