Homemade Organic Marinated Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Salad

I have slightly adapted this recipe from Serious Eats.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1/4 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped organic basil
  • 1 pound organic mozzarella, cubed; OR organic ciliegine mozzarella (cherry-size mozzarella balls)
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground organic peppercorn blend
  • 1 pint [2 cups] organic cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. organic balsamic vinegar 
  • 2 Tbsp. organic red wine vinegar

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Combine the oil, basil, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Add the mozzarella, then cover and let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Add tomatoes and vinegar to the mozzarella; Toss to combine.
  4. Season to taste with more salt and pepper if desired.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. Enjoy!
