This salad is as easy to make as to dice some tomatoes and fresh mozzarella and toss them in a basil pesto. I made my own basil pesto and I used a bit more lemon juice than usual to make it more like a dressing for the salad. The diced caprese salad with basil pesto dressing was amazing! It was nice and cool and light and refreshing. The basil pesto worked really well as the basil component of the caprese salad and it also worked well as a dressing.

- 1 pound tomatoes (diced)
- 1 pound fresh mozzarella (diced)
