Love this salad, before it came out, I was a little bit not sure about the flavor; when I tried first bite, and it was soooo good, the flavor was just so simple, refreshing and tasty. Although we used vine-ripe plum tomato that was sweeter, fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil were perfect combination. Drizzled a little bit balsamic vinegar to give extra zing before serving. Strongly recommend this recipe to everyone, quick, easy and so yummy!

Simple, elegant and super quick and easy to make with fresh clean summer flavors. If you have tomatoes from your garden or score some heirloom or other tasty varieties this is the perfect way to use them up. The plating (see photo) turned out much like a flower.
