Tomato and Bocconcini Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This is one of my favorite salads I used to always buy in the deli of my grocery store until I found this recipe! It is a recipe I got from Rachael Ray's magazine. Boccoccini are bite-size balls of fresh mozzarella. You can substitute 1/2-inch cubes of regular fresh mozzarella, but it's not as good.

I tripled this recipe and took it to a family reunion. They loved it! I got a request to make it for a bridal shower and I'll be proud to do that! I used red wine vinegar and also tossed in a teaspoon of Italian dressing.
