Cubing the mozzarella so that it was the same size as a quartered cherry tomato ensures equal amounts of these fresh summer ingredients in every bite of our Cherry Tomato Caprese Salad. Tossing the quartered cherry tomatoes with salt and letting them sit drew out their excess moisture, preventing the salad from suffering a watery fate. When we reduced the excess tomato juice and simmered it with vinegar and garlic, its concentrated flavor made a potent base for the vinaigrette that gave our salad a double tomato flavor.
