Salads have a wide variety in terms of kinds and ingredients but the Caprese Pasta salad is my constant favorite at all times. The tomatoes added to it are the main specialty of this salad. Tomatoes give a good color to this salad. This recipe is Rachael Ray’s recipe and so is legendary.

The salad is dressed with mayo, basil, and cheese. The cheesy appearance of this salad gives pleasure to our eyes. That is why it is closest to my heart. The ingredients used in the proceedings should be quality ingredients and everything should be fresh to have the best taste.
