Wash and prepare the tomatoes, slicing them thinly.
Chop basil and parsley, slice onion and sprinkle over the tomatoes.
Add the cheese. If you are using fresh Caprese, use whole balls if they are small, otherwise cut into halves ro quarters. If you are using goat cheese, cut or crumble into 1/4 inch chunks.
Combine all of the dressing ingredients except the oil in a blender. Turn the blender on low and slowly drizzle the oil processing until creamy.
Pour the dressing over the tomatoes and cheese.
Garnish #1: Add additional basil leaves as a garnish.
Garnish #2: IF you have a really good quality, thick balsamic vinegar, drizzle very sparingly over top. This gives an unbelievable punch of taste!
Serve at room temperature.
You can make this salad with fresh Caprese, or with a crumbly goat cheese.Use the balsamic vinegar as a "garnish" ONLY if you have a very good quality, thick vinegar. This does NOT work with thin balsamic vinegar varieties.
