Tomato Basil Avocado Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Ingredients

Salad ingredients

  • 1/2 pound (2 cups) red grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 pound (2 cups) yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 8 ounces small fresh mozzarella cheese balls
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

Dressing ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey, warmed
  • Salt, to taste

Cooking Process

  1. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients, except Mozzarella cheese balls.
  2. That is, combine halved red and yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, diced avocado, chopped basil.
  3. In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients: whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey until nice and smooth.
  4. Add the salad dressing to the large bowl with salad, sprinkle with a small amount of salt, and toss to combine. Taste and season with more salt, if needed.
  5. Add Mozzarella cheese balls on top only at this point — so that they don’t brown from the dressing.
