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 our 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

This is a fresh, yummy, classic salad that'll use up summer tomatoes and fresh basil. Using prosciutto makes this a little different and we loved the savory addition. The tangy balsamic dressing is easy to prepare and adds a final punch of flavor to the recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

  2. With a serrated knife slice the tomato and mozzarella. Slice the mozzarella a bit thinner.
  3. Place the tomato slice on the plate. Top with a tiny pinch salt and pepper. Place the basil leaf on top.
  4. Then add the mozzarella; repeat.
  5. I like to put the strips of prosciutto on the side of the plate.
  6. Then top just the tomato mozzarella with the dressing.
