TOMATO BASIL AVOCADO MOZZARELLA SALAD WITH BALSAMIC DRESSING
This recipe is simple and uses just a few ingredients: tomatoes, fresh basil, avocado, Mozzarella cheese, and easy homemade balsamic dressing
Author: Julia | Julia’s Album
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
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons honey , warmed
salt to taste
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.
In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients: whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey until nice and smooth.
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.
