Recipe by Penny Stettinius

For an easy, tasty, and different twist on the tomato-mozzarella salad, try this dressing. The tastes of the Balsamic and Soy are so good together!

Yes, the addition of the soy sauce is a little different -- but this is just AWESOME!!! I picked up some baby Heirloom tomatoes at the grocery store yesterday and used them. I also had some of the small fresh mozzarella balls and added them (I cut the tomatoes and mozarella balls in half -- just so they could absorb more of the dressing. I had some green onions that I added also. This is sooooo simple to put together and the flavor is outstanding. The dish looked so attractive -- all the various colors of the Heirlooms, the cheese and the green onion. The next time I make it (which will be very soon), I'm going to add some fresh basil. I can't wait to serve this at our next barbecue. Plus I didn't have any Tamari on hand, so I just used plain soy sauce. I want to use the Tamari the next time. Thank you for posting this.
