Summertime Tomato + Mozzarella Salad
serves 4 • 20 minutes • $$

1 pound ripe tomatoes,
slice into bite-size pieces
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
6 oz. fresh mozzarella
cheese, torn into
bite-size pieces
handful fresh basil, leaves carefully chopped as not to bruise
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1. Toss tomatoes with salt and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
2. Add the cheese, basil and olive oil. Toss and serve.

Ripe tomatoes are key to this salad. (When choosing tomatoes, go for those that are heavy for their size and give ever so slightly when gently squeezed. When storing tomatoes, always store at room temperature.) For an extra punch of flavor, add 1-2 tablespoons of high-quality balsamic vinegar when adding the olive oil.
