This is probably my number one favorite side-dish recipe during the month of August when I have lots of cherry tomatoes and fresh basil from the garden. Slice them up, add some fresh mozzarella and voila! A beautiful and delicious summer dish. – Jessica
2 cups cherry tomatoes, sliced in half or quartered, depending on size
1 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, diced to the same size as the tomatoes
1/3 cup fresh basil, cut small
salt and fresh ground pepper (optional)
1. TOSS: Combine the tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil in a medium sized bowl. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top – to taste. If desired, also season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss it all up and enjoy!
