This quick fresh salad screams summer to me. I love taking this on picnics and potlucks.
- 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 2⁄3 cup olive oil
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 1⁄2 cups mozzarella cheese, cubed
- 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 3 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
- In a bowl combine vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper whisk in oil. Add remaining ingredients toss to coat.
- Cover and refrigerate for about an hour stir occasionally.
This has an excellent vinegarette. I did omit the cheese as I was serving the salad with a panini sandwich loaded with lots of cheese. I subbed a fresh cucumber and a purple onion. I was very happy with the salad & can understand why it would be a hit at a summer potluck. Made for ZWT4.
I loved that this recipe used cherry tomatoes because they are tasty and easy to just halve. I used fresh mozzarella cheese - my favorite - and a Vidalia onion. This is your basic but delicious tomato and mozzarella salad which is easy to prepare with terrific results. I made this for Zaar World Tour 4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
This was great with our local farmers' market fresh mozzarella and some cherry tomatoes a friend gave us. I didn't have any red wine vinegar on hand so I used balsamic vinegar which was very good. I bought some red wine vinegar special to try this again for a church lunch tomorrow. Also I used a purple onion as Susie D. did and that made for a nice colorful salad! Thanks for sharing!
