This salad is super easy with four ingredients - tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and balsamic vinegar. We had it at a "Wine Bar" restaurant and liked it so much, I copied it.


  1. Dice tomatoes.
  2. Cube Mozzarella Cheese.
  3. Mince Basil.
  4. Mix and put under broiler until cheese begins to melt.
  5. Splash on Balsamic Vinegar to taste.

Had a box of oval tomatoes, slightly larger than grape, which were no on the banned list. Cut them in half, had LOTS of fresh basil in my herb barrel which I chiffonaded, and 2 slices of fresh mozzarella - diced. Broiled in toaster oven for about 8 minutes, and used a heavy hand with balsamic. This was a nice side to crab cakes and egg-potato salad. Thanks for posting.

Yum! This recipe couldn't be easier to prepare; and it's a wonderful way to use the extra tomatoes and basil from the summer garden. My teens loved this with sliced french bread while I finished dinner!

This is a wonderful salad, Rumpole. I love it when I can use my fresh basil from my herb garden. This makes a tasty and colorful salad that is so easy to prepare. Thanks for sharing.
