This light and refreshing salad is one of our favorites. It’s easy to assemble and is the perfect salad for grilled or roasted meats.
When fresh tomatoes begin ripening on the vines, my mind always thinks of this salad. How can you go wrong with mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes, and basil?
This salad also could be served as an appetizer. Need a little afternoon snack? Yep, it’s great for that, too!
If you love eating seasonal produce, this is the recipe for you.
On a small platter, alternate thick slices of mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes. Sprinkle with basil, salt, and pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and serve. You can also add a drizzle of balsamic reduction if your family enjoys that. Most of my family prefers it without.
