Tomato and Fresh Mozzarella Salad With Basil
photo by ChefLee
- Ready In:
- 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.
- Slice or cut the tomatoes in as big pieces as you like them.
- Cut the mozarella into small cubes (1/4 inch).
- Mix the tomatoes, mozarella, basill and season it with salt and pepper.
- Drizzle with olive oil.

There is no better salad on the face of the Earth than fresh tomatoes and mozzarella with basil!!! I had found some really good tomatoes at my store today (a rarity these days) and also had been to Trader Joe's and gotten a fresh ball of mozzarella (they have the best price if you can get to one). I am in heaven today!!! I did not peel my tomatoes but I did slice them and lay them on a paper towel to get rid of some of the excess juice and seeds. I also did not use balsamic, I didn't want to disguise any of the wonderful fresh flavors. I don't think this salad ever needs balsamic. Love Love Love this salad, thanks for posting!!!!!!!!!!!!
