There’s nothing more refreshing and tasty as this simple Tomato Mozzarella Salad. It’s a great compliment to any meal. Best of all, it’s fast and easy to prepare, naturally gluten-free and good for you!
2-3 fresh medium tomatoes, sliced
fresh mozzarella cheese (the soft kind), sliced
1/4 c balsamic vinegar, approximately
1 Tbsp olive oil, more or less (I go for less)
1 tsp REAL maple syrup, honey, or sweetener of your choice
A sprinkle of onion powder, to taste
fresh basil leaves, if desired
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella cheese and place them alternately on a plate or in a shallow dish. (I have little bowl-plates I like to use.) In a small mixing cup or bowl, combine the balsamic vinegar, the syrup, olive oil, and onion powder and blend together with a wire whisk or stick blender.
Pour over the tomato and cheese slices. Add a few fresh basil leaves, if desired. Allow to marinate for 15-20 minutes before serving.
This is a great dish to take to any type of gathering. It works well as a great appetizer, too.
Got a bigger crowd? Simply double/triple the recipe as the above recipe serves 4…sometimes only 2! It’s that good!
