My mother in law offered me her awesome tomatoes and basil from her garden. I was able to throw this together to eat as a side dish instead of the fries that everyone else was eating. Soooo tasty.
Ingredients for a single serving:
–10 mozzarella balls
–7 grape or other small tomatoes, halved
–1.5 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or even a flavored oil such as herb or basil)
–1 large basil leaf, cut into ribbons
–1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
–salt and pepper to taste
Lay the mozzarella and tomatoes in the bowl, sprinkle the oil and vinegar over the top, add basil, and season to taste. Voila!
