Yes yes yes... I make my own Rasberry-Balsamic reduction (reduce Framboise and a nice Balsamic) and drizzle that over along with a good cold pressed Olive Oil (has a little peppery kick depending on the region). When I really want to make a bang I serve this with a few white anchovies on the side of the plate. YUM!
This is an excellent dish. I serve it as a salad sometimes. I have added chopped black olives and finely chopped anchovies also. Use less salt if adding anchovies.
Great recipe!only difference is I used lemon juice intead of balsamic vinegar and I slivered a handfull of basil and sprinkle it on. So glad I found this one again; simply fresh!!!
This is such a refreshing treat! I loved it! :D
I've made this very salad many, many times. Just purchased some ciliegine (small fresh mozarella balls) and cherry tomatoes last night to make again today with my own fresh basil. I do cut the basil into strips when I make this salad. I enjoy it both with and without the balsamic vinegar - but if you have a really good aged one, it is superb! Fresh cracked pepper is a must in my opinion. I agree with a couple of other reviewers that fresh or canned anchovies alongside the salad is a great addition once in a while! Thanks for posting this simple and delicious recipe, Tish.
Exactly what I was looking for. I liked it with balsamic vinegar drizzled, though I was a bit inept on the "drizzling" technique.
Absolutely perfect, just as written! Pleasing to the eye. Thank you, I will be serving this often.
A delicious and easy way to use summer tomatoes.....pretty for company...
Always wondered what people saw (tasted) in a tomato, basil, mozerella salad, but made this because I had a basil plant growing wild. Mmmmm it was so delicious and the best part was that the kids loved it too.
I made this after watching Giada make it on Foodnetwork and it was so delicious,so easy, and doesnt leave you feeling hungry afterwards like most salads, its very filling. I usually add a little pepper flakes to give it a little spice. Very yummy i've eatin' it 3 days in a row for lunch.
