I can’t believe that I haven’t blogged this salad before! It’s my favorite summer salad. So simple and flavorful.
- 1-2 tomatoes of choice(I used roma)
- 8 oz fresh buffalo mozzarella
- fresh basil leaves
- olive or avocado oil
- salt and pepper
- balsamic reduction(optional)
Slice tomatoes and cheese into slices of equal thickness. Layer on a plate with basil leaves. Drizzle with oil and balsamic reduction. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with ribbons of basil if desired.
This salad is the only way I can get Brian to eat tomatoes besides in a marinara or pizza sauce. This particular salad may have been a little heavy on the cheese and a little light on the tomato, but who is judging?
