Summer Tomato Salad

Summer Tomato Salad

I love this salad in the summertime when tomatoes are in season.  I am a firm believer in food seasonality and in winter I want a tomato salad so bad but know that it will taste awful because the tomatoes in the grocery stores are tasteless and mushy. So In summer I eat as many tomatoes as I can and I am always looking for new ways to enjoy them. You can add any type of lettuce to this salad and make a full meal of it with some good bread or serve it as a side as it is. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

Ingredients

  • Cherry tomatoes ( as little or as much as you like)
  • 1 large ripe tomato, sliced into rounds
  • 1 ball of Mozzarella Cheese, sliced into rounds
  • 1 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • Basil leaves ( as much or as little as you like), chopped or whole
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  1. Slice half of the cherry tomatoes into rounds and the other half lengthwise.
  2. Place tomato slices on a serving plate, alternating with slices of cheese. Top with the cherry tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with basil, and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Before serving, drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
  4. Serve with bread and extra balsamic vinegar and olive oil on the side.
