Do you serve this cold or at room temperature?

Caprese salad is served at room temperature. You will want to get everything out, assemble your tree and then drizzle your balsamic glaze and let it sit for about 15 minutes so that the tomatoes and the mozzarella soak up the glaze for an irresistible salad.
