Fresh Mozzarella and Cherry Tomato Toss

Our cherry tomatoes are are just bursting with flavor and are coming off of the vine in droves. So one of the things I love to do with these scrumptious little fruits is to toss them with fresh mozzarella and basil.
This recipes is easy peasy as well as super yummy.


All you need are...
1 pt. fresh cherry tomatoes, halved
 1/3 lb. fresh mini mozzarella balls, halved
10-12 leaves of fresh basil
3T. extra virgin olive oil (I typically infuse my olive oil with garlic. Just drop some garlic cloves into olive and let it sit for a day or two.)
1 T. red wine vinegar
sea salt
fresh cracked pepper
Toss first 3 ingredients together. Then whisk together the oil and vinegar, pour over the tomato mixture, toss, season with sea salt and cracked pepper and toss again. Garnish with a basil sprig and you are done!

  1. Summer in a dish! Liquid gold that olive oil is, so delish. xo

  2. Barbara-Those sound wonderful. I have done tomatoes kind of like that but as an appetizer on a tray with a basil leaf attached. This sounds like a much simpler idea- love it- xo Diana

  3. I love this salad... was first introduced to it by my co-worker. Can't wait for my tomatoes to ripen and I hope my basil will still be producing by that time.

  4. I'm in the car and on my way.... (ok I wish I were in the car on my way!)
