Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Salad July 21, 2010

Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Salad

Jamie says:  Kathryn and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch together the other day.  We both made our own lunches with a couple of different things.  We couldn’t stop raving over how delicious our own lunches were (or maybe we were just a little extra hungry).  This salad was one part of my tasty lunch.   

Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella 

 Salad  Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup Publix Spring Mix
  • 1 vine-ripe tomato (very ripe, room temperature)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 oz Publix Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 tsp Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Alma’s Balsamic Vinegar of Modena

Directions: 

  1. Pour pre-washed salad on a plate.
  2. Wash tomato and basil. Slice tomato and then cut slices in half. Place  on top of salad. Top tomatoes with salt, pepper, then basil, followed by cheese.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and vinegar on top of salad. Enjoy!
The vine-ripe tomatoes with the basil were quite refreshing.  This salad was so good for a hot summer afternoon side dish. 
  • Nutrition note: Tomatoes are high in vitamin C and vitamin A (beta carotene). One medium tomato provides 20% of your vit A and 40% of your vit C.
