Tomato, Cucumber and Mozzarella Salad

This side salad is a great summer staple for get togethers or just to keep in your fridge for several days.  The ingredients are few and simple, but pack a lot of flavor.  I just followed Shannon’s directions and after about 10 minutes, a delicious side to accompany any summer meal!

You will need:
1 1/2 to 2 lbs of Campari tomatoes (or similar)
2 to 3 seedless cucumbers, sliced however you prefer (we did half-moon shapes)
large container of marinated mozzarella balls
lots of basil
few tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette dressing
salt & pepper

Wash your veggies and peel the cukes.  Quarter the tomatoes and cut the cucumbers and toss in a bowl.  Dump in the mozzarella balls and as much of the marinating liquid as you feel appropriate (don’t want it too soggy).  Coarsely chop your basil and toss in, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with the balsamic dressing.  Toss well and taste.  Adjust your seasonings and flavor as you see fit and enjoy!
Serves: 6+
Recipe from: my friend Shannon
