Marinated Tomato Salad

Level: Easy

Makes: 4 Servings

Picture of marinated tomato salad.
This is by far one of my favorite summer side dishes. Yellow cherry tomatoes were on sale this week, but really any type of tomato is good.

Ingredients:
8 oz Mozzarella Ball, cut into bite-sized cubes
1 pt Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Dried Basil or 2 Tablespoons Fresh Basil, chopped
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Pepper

Tools:
1 Chef’s Knife
1 Cutting Board
1 Medium Mixing Bowl
1 Slotted Spoon
Plastic Wrap or Lid for Mixing Bowl

Directions:
Make sure tomatoes are cut in half or quarters and the mozzarella is bite-sized.  Combine all ingredients together in a bowl; stir to distribute ingredients as evenly as possible. Cover with plastic wrap or lid and place in refrigerator to marinade for at least 30 minutes. I prefer to let mine marinade for about 3 hours, but if you’re pressed for time 30 minutes will work.

Enjoy!
