recipe: heirloom tomato & mozzarella salad

February 5, 2012

This is the simplest, most delicious salad you will ever make.  I swear.  It doesn’t even really have a recipe it’s so simple.  Here it is:



1-2 ripe heirloom tomatoes (buy these at the farmers market or a reputable grocery store – if these don’t taste good, the salad won’t!)

a handful of chopped basil

mozzarella cheese (again, the good kind that comes packed in liquid, not string cheese or pre-sliced)

extra virgin olive oil

balsamic vinegar

salt/pepper to taste


Slice the tomatoes in nice, thick slices, top each with a slice of mozarella cheese, sprinkle the chopped basil on top, splash some olive oil and balsamic around the whole thing and finish off with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.  Now dig in.  Yummmmmmmmm…
