This is another one of my cherished Lazy Recipes, and I’m happy to share it with you all even though you’ve probably made some variation of it on your own by now. It’s basically my own take on something my mom makes all the time. This works better with fresh mozzarella, but the store-bought block variety works just fine as well. The basil, however, must be fresh.
There’s really not much else to say, here, since it’s such a ridiculously easy recipe. This makes a great side dish or a snack. Keep in mind the measurements are all approximate; I usually just try to have an equal amount of cheese and tomato in there, and the oil-to-vinegar ratio is about 3:1.
Mozzarella & Tomato Salad
8 oz. whole cherry tomatoes
8 oz. fresh or processed mozzarella, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette
¼ cup fresh basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix them up in a bowl and then eat them.
