Tomato mozzarella salads epitomize summer. They are refreshing, healthy, and beautiful too. I made this salad from the tomato and basil I had delivered from local farms. Without a doubt, it was the best one I have ever had.
To make your own delicious salad, find the freshest ingredients you can. This tomato couldn’t have been any better. So juicy and sweet!
Then, layer slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese with fresh basil leaves. Drizzle some olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the salad, and season it with salt, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes.
I like to let my salad sit for a few minutes before serving it so the oil and vinegar and tomato juices have a chance to really mingle with each other. One of the best parts of a tomato mozzarella salad is the deliciously flavorful liquid you’re left with once it’s all eaten.
Those juices just cannot go to waste! For this reason alone, I always eat my tomato mozzarella salads with a freshly toasted piece of crusty bread. My plate looks brand new by the time I’m done with it!!
