Where would we be without tomatoes? Here is yet another version of a Tomato Salad, one that pairs them with Mozzarella. Fresh or traditional mozzarella can be used – both are great. Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella and Boccancini balls go so well with tomatoes, but so does the traditional, drier Mozzarella. Normally associated with pizza, it is also nice eaten sliced or cubed as part of an antipasto plate or in a salad. That’s the one we use today, but you can choose either.
Are you after other Mozzarella Salads? Try Caprese Salad, Marinated Buffalo Mozzarella and Tomato, Grilled Fennel with Fresh Mozzarella, Marinated Zucchini Salad with Bocconcini, and Mozzarella and Eggplant Torte.

Toss cubed mozzarella with chopped tomatoes, a little chilli, olive oil and a little wine vinegar. That’s it!
recipe notes and alternatives
Add a few leaves of flat leaved parsley.
I have added some rosemary flowers from the garden. They have an intense rosemary flavour without the toughness of the rosemary needles. The flowers also go well in pasta dishes and over roasted vegetables.
