How to make Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Salad
Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
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.
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and gently toss until coated evenly.
Let the salad sit for at least 15-20 minutes before serving. You want the dressing to marinate the tomatoes and mozzarella.
Serve and enjoy this colorful, healthy Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Salad!

Slice larger tomatoes in half. I used a combination of different tomatoes. But use whatever you like. Slice mozzarella balls in half. You want tomatoes and mozzarella to be similar in size. Place in a large bowl.
Add the parsley and basil to the tomatoes and mozzarella, gently toss until combined.
Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and gently toss to coat evenly.
Let sit 15 minutes before serving so the flavors combine.
