Who doesn’t love a good golden tomato and mozzarella salad, right?!
It’s kinda toward the end of summer, I mean school even starts back tomorrow (eeeek!).
I have an abundance of tomatoes growing away in the garden.
That means lots of fresh tomato salads, which is perfectly perfect with me 🙂
I tried golden tomatoes this year and they are one of my new favorites!
My teenage daughter wanted to help with my garden this year.
She encouraged me to try some new things and I’m so glad she did 🙂
Plus it was fun working in the garden together with her.
Isn’t she just the cutest?!
How to Make Golden Tomato and Mozzarella Salad
Golden Tomato and Mozzarella Salad has been my lunch for the past three days now, but this dish would be a great side dish or salad to bring to a party as well.
The dressing is just olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a little sugar all mixed together.
The sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to the already sweet golden tomatoes.
Slice the tomatoes in half and slice the fresh mozzarella to match the size of the tomatoes.
These were the cute little balls of fresh mozzarella.
You could also get the big roll and slice into the size you want for your salad.
I mix the dressing in and sprinkle of kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper…let it sit for a few minutes, top with fresh basil and enjoy!
It’s extra good with some crusty french bread on the side.
Dipping the bread in with the dressing of Tomato and Mozzarella Salad is my favorite part 🙂
