The Best Caprese Pasta Salad

The highest praise I can give a recipe is that I will make it again.  This one will be made over and over and over again!

salad

16 ounces pasta

8 – 16 oz mozzarella pearls

1 1/2 – 3 cups halved grape tomatoes

1/4 – 1/2 cup thinly sliced basil

dressing

1 cup olive oil

2/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 teaspoons oregano

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

(Basically I doubled everything in this recipe except the pasta)

1  For the salad, boil pasta according to package instructions.  Drain and allow to cool a bit.

2  Combine pasta, mozzarella, tomatoes and basil in a large serving bowl.

3  For the dressing, whisk together all ingredients.  Pour half of the dressing over the pasta and stir to combine.  Put in fridge until ready to serve.  Right before serving, pour the second half of the dressing over the salad and stir to combine.
