Simple Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad recipe

I love a simple salad recipe. When I stocked up on some amazing mozzarella cheese and saw some heirloom tomatoes, I knew exactly what I needed to do, make a simple salad…it’s perfect for this Spring and takes only a few minutes to make. Here are the details to this weekend’s recipe which is inspired by one of my favorite, Ina Garten!

   

Simple Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

  • 6 small tomatoes (4 medium), preferably heirloom if they’re in season
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella
  • 10 to 15 basil leaves, trimmed and thinly slicked
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella and arrange casually with the basil leaves on a large platter. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve at room temperature.
