Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella Salad With Basil

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mom of twins 2

We are buying tomatoes this summer in huge amounts so this is what we are eating pretty much every day. This is the base version, but I also sometimes throw avocado or green onion in. You can do pretty much anything you want with this. It's sooo easy. The amounts are just approximates - it will vary by taste.

This is one of my own recipes. I have been making it for years. I use fresh ground pepper and fresh ground sea salt in mine, but it is the same. I do not use balsamic. It is perfect with out it and it is absolutely one of my favorite things! Love it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take the skin off the tomatoes - a huge difference. If the skin is tough to come off, I cut the skin slightly and pour hot water over them and keep the tomatoes covered for a couple of minutes.
  2. Slice or cut the tomatoes in as big pieces as you like them.
  3. Cut the mozarella into small cubes (1/4 inch).
  4. Mix the tomatoes, mozarella, basill and season it with salt and pepper.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil.
