Super easy, super flavorful! This is a great way to get my boys to eat tomatoes, they love this salad. It is super easy and even better when we pick the tomatoes out of out garden and I always have fresh basil in a pot. So good. I made this balsamic dressing years ago and it really pulls the dish together! so good! Hope you love it as much as we do.

Thanks
Monica

Ingredients

1
vine ripened tomato (sometimes i mix the colors of the tomato if i can find em) you can also use cherry or grape tomatoes
1
ball of fresh mozzarella cheese (if you make it with cherry tomato use the small balls of mozzarella)
balsamic dressing (recipe link below)
thinly sliced proscuitto (optional)
4 fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper (a pinch to taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
With a serrated knife slice the tomato, slice the mozzarella a bit thinner
2
place the tomato slice on the plate, top with a tiny pinch salt and pepper, place the basil leaf on top, then the mozzarella, and repeat.

I like to put the strips of proscuitto on the side of the plate and then top just the tomato mozzarella with the dressing.
