Fresh mozzarella makes a cheese salad that is light, tender, a little chewy, but not at all rubbery. All in all this salad is the work of a moment. It can be made either hours ahead of serving, giving the herbs a chance to penetrate the cheese and merge with one another, or at the last moment, leaving the flavors fresher and more distinct.

Use a single favorite or mix several together, such as marjoram and Italian parsley with a bit of thyme and hyssop, or peppery nasturtium leaves
