Warm Caprese Salad

I literally turned up the heat on this favorite dish.  I heated the tomatoes until they were hot and sizzling and then poured them over the fresh mozzarella.  This dish dances in your mouth, peppery arugula, melting mozzarella and warm tomatoes.  I can’t think of anything better to serve on a beautiful spring day.  Perfect with grilled meats, fish or along side a juicy hamburger.
