Tossed Caprese Salad

Tossed Caprese Salad recipe with cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarrella tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil

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

olive oil 

balsamic vinegar

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!
