Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella with Cherry Tomato Salad…what a treat!

I found fresh buffalo mozzarella at my local Sam’s Club (really!) and I definitely had to buy it. I love regular fresh mozzarella, but buffalo mozzarella is an even bigger treat!!

I didn’t have any large tomatoes to slice up to make the traditional caprese salad, so I went with cherry tomatoes instead. It was yummy.

Recipe:

1 1/2  cup red cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1 1/2 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

2 tablespoons extra vigin olive oil (EVOO), approximately

10 large leaves fresh basil from my garden, chiffonade (stack leaves, roll tightly and slice thin)

arugula

balsamic vinegar, use really good balsamic if you have it

fresh group pepper and salt, to taste

Instructions:

Slice tomatoes in half and slice mozzarella into chunks. Place in small bowl. Drizzle with EVOO, add basil and toss, gently. Place arugula on plate and then place a small mound of salad on top. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, season with fresh ground salt and pepper and enjoy! This is great with warm fresh bread!
