This such a great summer dish for when you are craving a lighter but flavorful and delicious meal. Plus it is super easy to make! The real work comes when searching for the perfect, fresh, big and juicy tomatoes at the grocery store/market.
Heirloom Tomato Salad
3 Large Heirloom Tomatoes
8-10 cherry tomatoes
2 fresh mozzarella balls6-8 basil Leaves (about 3 tablespoons)
Salt and pepper
5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 & 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
These are the lucky guys I chose… red, yellow and green and some cherry tomatoes from the garden
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella into big slices, about a half an inch
Stack the basil leaves and roll into a cigar shape, slice on its side for even strips (chiffonade)
Combine all ingredients into one bowl
Toss, cover and refrigerate for about an hour
Arrange beautifully & ENJOY!
