“This makes a refreshing meal, served with a loaf of crusty french bread and good bottle of red wine; could also be used as a first course, in reduced quantities. I recommend using the finger-tip sized fresh mozzarella balls if you can find them. Which salad greens you use are up to you, but a combination half dark green leaf/half alfalfa sprouts seems to work particularly well, and is also quite attractive. I'd never eaten alfalfa sprouts before trying this recipe but was a quick convert to their clean, spicy flavor.”
