Friday Feast: Tomato, Basil and Moz Salad

June 29, 2012

One night this week when JD was working very late (and they provide dinner for him), I put Maggie down to sleep and realized I hadn’t had dinner yet myself. I was starving but was overall warm from the hot day, running errands, and doing chores. I looked around in my fridge and pulled together this salad, and it ended up wonderfully. Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

cherry tomatoes (you could probably use larger tomatoes, but I prefer less tomato juice)

fresh, soft mozzarella

basil (I used the ripe stuff from my basil plant.)

extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper

chicken (optional)

  • In a bowl, mix halved cherry tomatoes, shredded basil slices, and small mozzarella cubes.
  • Stir together EVOO, salt, and pepper and toss in the bowl.
  • Add grilled chicken for extra protein…. I bet summer sausage would also be good with this. Baby spinach would be a great addition as well.

What you get is a cool, fresh, and healthy summer salad… and it’s pretty!
