Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

  • Salad:
  • 2 cups of cherry tomatoes
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella – bocconcini or ciliegine – small round cheese
  • 2 tbs minced parsley
  • Dressing:
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 small garlic cube – minced
  • 8 twists of black pepper
  1. Slice cherry tomatoes in half – I used a combination of yellow and red tomatoes.
  2. Slice mozzarella balls in half (you want the size to be similar to the sliced cherry tomatoes). It’s important to use fresh mozzarella in this salad.
  3. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic and pepper. Pour over mozzarella and cherry tomatoes.
  4. Sprinkle parsley over salad and toss gently until combined.
  5. Let sit 15 minutes before serving so the flavors marinate.
