Why the Recipe Works

When it comes to building a salad, ease is the most important factor. Salads are suppose to be easy to make especially when the weather starts to warm up. This Tomato & Mozzarella Salad takes less that 15 minutes to make and is completely portable if taking to a picnic or summer bbq. And with only five ingredients, it’s likely you already have what you need to put it together.

Tomato & Mozzarella Salad Ingredients

This recipe starts with a full plate of tomatoes. I love the colorful heirloom tomatoes in season during the spring and summer months.

Here’s the full list of ingredients:

  • Heirloom or Roma Tomatoes
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Salt & Pepper

How to Make this Recipe

  • Cut off the stem on the tomatoes and cut in quarters.
  • Slice the fresh mozzarella cheese into bite size pieces.
  • Drizzle enough olive oil over the tomatoes and mozzarella cheese to cover.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Get your hands dirty and combine everything by hand.
  • Add the parsley and basil and again mix by hand to cover the tomatoes completely.
  • Pour onto a serving dish and you are ready to enjoy.

Notes

  • The tomatoes can be cut even smaller if you prefer it. The key is to make sure the seeds of the tomato stay intact.
  • You can pre-make the salad before you serve and leave it at room temperature. This will allow all the flavors to come together even more.
  • Store the left-overs in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. It will last you a few days.
