This was a wonderful salad! I did add some diced onion and a little garlic salt for added flavor but will make this definately again. I served this with Nob Hill Chicken Bake#164782 by Chef#219942#219942 which made for a wonderful meal. Thank you for a delicious salad. P.S. Fresh tomatoes really add to the flavor.
This is one of my GO TO easy and delicious summer salads when the tomatoes are perfection. I sometimes add cucumber and/or red onion if I have it around. It's similar to a caprese salad taste but it feels lower maintenance. A must try!
So delicious! Fresh garden tomatoes, the mozzerella and the dressing...what a great combination!
Wonderful Salad! Family couldn't get enough! Thank You
This was excellent! I didn't really measure anything, just threw it all together, and I probably used way more balsamic vinegar than called for, but it was a great side dish with dinner. Can't wait to try it this summer when the tomatoes are even better. Thanks for posting!
Great with Beefsteak tomatoes out of the garden and fresh Mozzarella!
I used grape tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. I also added tons of cracked black pepper and just a little finely minced garlic. It was delicious. I served it with a sourdough baguette, grilled fish and roasted asparagus. A wonderful meal. Thank you!
Ah yes.... I love this way of preparing 'maters in the summer. Maryanne
I have had a salad similar to this at a restaurant and I wanted to recreate it at home...since I was fixing it just for me, I reduced the measurements, only using one tomato. I bought mozzarella balls and quartered them...the basil was fresh from my garden and had a full flavor that was amazing! Panera's asiago bread made a nice side for a light lunch. Thanks!
Excellent salad and so flexable! This is one salad that I normally don't measure out the ingredients....it is a little bit of this and a little bit of that, until I am satisfied with color and taste. I sometimes use basil pesto instead of the basil, cutting down on the oil. An alternative way is to chop the the tomato and cheese into bite size pieces, adding garlic, salt pepper, a pinch of sugar and some chopped black olives. It is important that it rests for at least 1 hour so that you get the wonderful juices from the tomatoes. Have some rustic bread to catch all the juices!!! Artichoke hearts could also be added (but that is going to give this salad a whole different name!) This salad is also known as Caprese Salad. You can't go wrong with this one!!!
