Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Caprese Salad

3 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 cup fresh mozzarella, cut in half (or use regular fresh mozzarella and cut into pieces
1/4 cup Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1 salt
1 fresh ground black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Tomato Caprese Salad

  1. Drain fresh mozarella pearls while you cut cherry tomatoes in half; place tomatoes in bowl. Cut and mozzarella pearls in half and put in bowl with tomatoes.

  2. Wash basil and spin dry in salad spinner or dry with paper towels, then chop or tear basil into small pieces. Mix chopped basil into vinaigrette dressing,(I used my favorite vinaigrette, but any type of homemade or bottled vinaigrette that you like will work.

  3. A good choice would be Newman's Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing, which is widely available and has only 1 gram of sugar.)

  4. then gently combine dressing with the tomato mixture. Season to taste with fresh ground black pepper and serve immediately.
