If some of your tomatoes are on the larger size you can slice in half, which is what I did with these mini Kumato and Zima tomatoes. Slice the mozzarella balls in half, chop the basil and fresh parsley. Place them all in a large bowl and toss to combine.

  3. Add the parsley and basil to the tomatoes and mozzarella, gently toss until combined.

  4. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and gently toss to coat evenly.

  5. Let sit 15 minutes before serving so the flavors combine.
