…You say “toe-mah-toe” but we can all agree on what makes a great salad. Their juicy goodness adds more layers of sweetness and flavor to oil and vinegar than any other addition can. My love for these garden apples is no secret. I toss them into any dinner I can. Try using them to replace lettuce as your main salad ingredient, like in a delicious Caprese Salad.
Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad
1 lb of cherry tomatoes
1 small pkg of fresh mozzarella( this cheese is a much softer version and ideally comes packed in liquid)
1 bunch of fresh basil chopped
2 tbsp of seasoned rice vinegar(this is my favorite but any vinegar or even lemon would work here)
1/4 cup olive oil
Garlic salt to taste
Cut tomatoes in halves and add to a large bowl. Slice mozzarella into bite size pieces and add to tomatoes. Toss in basil, vinegar, oil and garlic salt. Mix together in bowl. Taste for seasoning and add more if needed.
