This is one of the favorite salads in our house - even the kids love it. A second option would be to substitute small yellow 'pearl' tomatoes and red 'grape' tomatoes along with the tiny rounds of mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • Ripe red tomatoes
  • Ripe yellow tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella rounds
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Kosher salt

Steps

  1. Slice tomatoes and mozzarella into 1/4 inch slices
  2. Alternate slices of red, yellow and mozzarella on serving plate
  3. Place basil leaves in between tomatoes
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the top and mix gently
  5. Drizzle very gently with vinegar
  6. Add a few good grinds of pepper and salt
