Tomato-Basil Salad recipe

Why mess with perfection? Arrange tomatoes, basil and mozzarella on a plate, drizzle a little vinaigrette on them and voilà—it's the perfect salad.

For "authentic Italian" you would not use vinegar, as the tomatoes are acid enough. Using only good olive oil allows all the delicate flavors to shine through. After layering the recipe ingredients, I sprinkle generously with minced garlic, a bit of oregano, and salt/pepper; then pour over the olive oil. Favoloso!
I think the major changes needed here, are to use "balsamic" vinegar and heirloom tomatoes, also, mozarella balls (available in containers) sliced up, buffalo mozarella is the best, but expensive, so regular will suffice. I also like to ad about a tsp. of minced garlic whisked into the vinegar, and then salt and pepper overall at the serving. Let me know how you like MY version ok? Its authentic Italian!
This recipe is very easy to make and I loved it. I am looking forward to farmer's market this year when fresh tomatoes are available and I will probably make this several times this summer.
This salad is excellent! I make it all the time as a side to several dishes. I like to use slices of mozarella instead of shredded, but both taste very good.
My son came to visit me and I made the Tomatoe-Basil salad for lunch. It was super and perfect for the day. It was about 90 degrees and the salad with ice tea was great. I grow my own tomatoes which made it so nice--all I did was go in my back yard and pick them. My son took the recipe back to his wife--thanks==Gloria
i have made this several times always a hit we love this
Loved this recipe. I have a bumper crop of basil and got super ripe tomatoes at the Farmer's Market & had Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian with Parmesan dressing on hand and I used red onions. Fantastic, even my husband gave it thumbs up; he's not really a fresh tomato lover. Great with rosemary/olive oil breadsticks. I will make this again for sure! I love your recipes. Thank You!
This is my "Kick the Summer Off" dish. My husband and I have this at least twice a week. We use what ever type of italian dressing we have in the fride and it dosen't matter. It seems to disappear before the table is cleared. One suggestion would be if your going to eat this dish alot like we do, plant a basil plant in your garden. It will pay for itself by your second meal!!!
This has got to be one of the best salads I have eaten in a very long time.I made it while I was visiting my daughter and we were trying to find something different to make. I will absolutley make it again.Can't wait to go try it out on my husband and other daughter.
sounds to good to be true
