Tomato And Mozzarella Salad Recipe, A Perfect Summer Starter

The tomato and mozzarella salad recipe makes a stylish appetizer when arranged in alternating slices around a plate.

A refreshing treat during summer-time when the tomatoes ripened under the sun and developed their full flavor. The herb basil used fresh is perfect for this salad. It also grows bountiful then.

Tomato And Mozzarella Salad Recipe

The following image example shows the tomato and mozzarella salad flat arranged with alternating tomato and mozzarella slices. To accent the dish, the basil leaves are irregularly layered in between as a green accent.

Less eye-catching but evenly tasty, tomatoes diced or wedged with cubed mozzarella fill a salad bowl. The seasoning stays the same.
