Ingredients

Salad:

  • 1 pint Mini Kumato tomatoes
  • 1 pint Zima tomatoes (yellow)
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 12 oz fresh mozzarella – Bocconcini or Ciliegine ( small round mozzarella balls)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil minced

Vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt coarse
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper fresh ground

Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  • 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.
