Caprese Salad

If you want something other than meat for your lean and green, this would be perfect. Your lean is entirely made up of fresh mozzarella. I could eat this stuff all day! I found my mozzarella at Wally World (Wal-mart) right next to the cream cheese. I thought it would be difficult to find fresh mozzarella that was less than 6 grams of fat per oz, but it wasn't. This sure was mighty tasty! I still have some cheese left over so I am going to shred the rest and put it on my cauliflower pizza crusts I have stored in the freezer. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have!
