OK, last week Outy mentioned eating tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, but I don't remember where we were talking about it.
So, I thought it sounded really tasty, so when I got groceries Saturday morning, I got some fresh mozzarella. The kind I got had cilantro and jalapenos on it, in a vacuum seal package, but it was on sale for 40% off, so that is the one I bought, even though I would have preferred plain to try.
I think this salad would be good with feta cheese too.
We had this for dinner yesterday.
1/4 cup olive oil
1- 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Arrange tomato and onion slices in rows in a serving dish. Sprinkle with chopped basil, and drizzle evenly with marinade. Cover and let stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
Add fresh mozzarella cheese, feta, or blue cheese.
