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.
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
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!
