Ingredients

Balsamic Dressing

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper to taste

Tomato Mozzarella Salad

  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 ounces mozzarella balls fresh
  • 1/4 cup sliced, fresh basil
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl whisk the ingredients for the balsamic vinaigrette and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl add the cherry tomatoes, mozzarella balls and basil. Mix with the balsamic dressing. Taste and season for salt as needed.

Notes

When storing the salad, the mozzarella balls will brown from the dressing.  While I don't mind this when making a batch for myself to eat at home, its a good idea to keep the dressing separate and add it to the salad right before you serve for more formal occasions.
