mozzarella salad

Fresh tomato and Italian Mozzarella salad

Light Bites

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.

Ingredients

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

Method

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.
