Do you love classic Italian Caprese salad, with crisp tomatoes, vibrant basil, and creamy buffalo-milk mozzarella? If you do, a new take on this Italian summertime classic is a dish you'll want to check out. 

Have you heard of Crescenza? This cow's milk cheese is like a felicitous blend between cream cheese and fresh mozzarella - it could not be more delicious! While the Mamablip recipe does include the crispy addition of sweet Calabrian Tropea onions, you can select to omit this ingredient if raw onions aren't your jam.

However, by following the recipe steps and soaking your thinly-sliced red onion, the Tropea onion becomes easy to digest, and much smoother and rounder in flavor sensation. What makes this tomato and cheese salad even more of a stand-out flavor?

The addition of a sprinkling of sweet Italian cherries, in season during the springtime and just when the best tomatoes are beginning to make their appearance.
