I was so excited to find an awesome sale on fresh mozzarella the other day. I love pairing it with fresh tomatoes, basil, and olive oil. Here’s what I came up with:

mozzarella & tomato salad drizzled with EVOO, add salt & peper and basil to taste

WHAT YOU DO

Combine the following, then chill in the fridge before serving:

  • 2 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into chunks
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • basil, to taste (usually I use fresh basil, but this time I used dried sweet basil)
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Not only is this fresh, fairly healthy, and delicious, the entire serving is just 4 Weight Watchers Plus points!
