This is an especially easy dish to make. How fresh the tomatoes are makes a big difference. Equally important, use organic or fresh tomatoes from your garden when available.
You can serve the Tomato Mozzarella Basil Salad as a side dish or main entree depending on your appetite. It’s healthy and only takes 10 minutes to prepare.
2 Raw Medium Tomatoes
5 oz Fresh Mozzarella
10 Sprigs of Fresh Basil
4 oz Olive Oil
1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
Place Mozzarella balls in the center of the plate. Cut tomatoes evenly into medium round slices. Blend in a processor, a quarter cup of olive oil with 10 sprigs of basil. Drizzle the blended olive oil and basil on the cheese and tomatoes. Lightly salt the tomatoes and cheese over the drizzled olive oil and basil. Garnish the centerpiece with basil leaves to create a beautiful salad presentation.
Organic ingredients enhance the flavor and texture of the salad. Especially, the tomatoes.
