Heirloom Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

Here at Kendall-Jackson, we’re crazy about heirloom tomatoes. So much so that we host an Annual Heirloom Tomato Festival every September. There’s just something special about biting into a meaty heirloom tomato — it’s so much more satisfying than those store bought, thin-skinned tomatoes that don’t hold any flavor.
