This is a wonderful salad! Fresh mozzarella may be hard to find so regular may be substituted, although it won't be exactly the same. Fresh mozzarella is submerged in water to retain it's moisture content and preserve it's soft, slightly elastic texture. Best when only a few days old, it has a delicate, milky texture. This recipe is from the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
