Cherry Tomato and Mozzarella Balls Caprese Salad Recipe

Tomato Mozzarella Balls Caprese Salad

This spring my Mom bought us an awesome cherry tomato plant that has been producing tons of tomatoes! They are delicious and taste even more so in this variation on one of my favorite recipes – Cherry Tomato and Mozzarella Balls Caprese Salad.  It’s a perfect start to a summer dinner or makes a great lunch with just a big chunk of crusty bread.

Ingredients:

1 pound mozzarella balls
2 cups cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/2 clove garlic, finely minced
3 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
salt and pepper

To make:

Making the salad is super easy.  In a small bowl combine oil, vinegar, and garlic stir well.  Place the mozzarella balls in a large bowl.  Cut the tomatoes in half and add to the mozzarella.  Pour dressing over top.  Stir in basil.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Stir well.  Serve immediately, or refrigerate to let flavors meld.  If refrigerated, bring salad back to room temperature before serving.

  1. Yum! Fresh mozzarella is one of my favorite foods, and I LOVE caprese salad!

  2. yummy. How cool that you can have all that from one cherry tomato plant! I’ve seen a similar combo at whole foods, and it is pricey, so I longingly keep passing it by – why not make my own, it looks sooo good!

    It is sooo hot here. I just came in from taking the dog for a short walk and we are both hot. Too hot to think about something hot from the oven. This looks so good and with just a small leaf lettuce salad and some good bread with olive oi/balsamic vinegar…Dinner is served! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
