Delicious basil, tomato & Mozzarella salad. So simple and easy to make, this light bite makes a prefect starter or light lunch. With mine I have added some iceberg lettuce for a crunch. To make a healthier version of the traditional salad use reduced fat Mozzarella cheese which also works great.
Prep time: 10 min | Servings: 2
2 medium tomatoes
200g fresh Mozzarella cheese (reduced fat)
fresh basil leaves
a few leaves of iceberg lettuce
drizzle of virgin olive oil
pinch of pink himalayan salt & freshly milled black pepper
Place iceberg lettuce on the medium plate. Arrange the slices of tomatoes & Mozzarella cheese layers. Add basil leaves on top and drizzle with virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with pink himalayan salt and freshly milled black pepper.
I like having my Mozzarella salad with a glass of Italian sparkling water or dry rose wine.
