Top 10: Unique Caprese Salads

Earlier this week one of my best friend’s mom, Diane, posted a delicious picture of a unique caprese salad on facebook that I cannot get out of my mind.  I googled the recipe ingredients (buffalo mozzarella, oranges, honey & pistachios) and I think it must have been this recipe from the San Jose Mercury.  I can’t wait to try it out myself and now I am obsessed with all the amazing caprese variations out there; the possibilities are literally endless but here are ten to get your imagination flowing:
