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!
