Ingredients

Salad ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound red grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (2 cups)

  • 1/2 pound yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (2 cups)

  • 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

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients, except Mozzarella cheese balls. That is, combine halved red and yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, diced avocado, chopped basil.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients: whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey until nice and smooth.

  3. 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. Add Mozzarella cheese balls on top only at this point - so that they don't brown from the dressing.
