Simple and delicious! A healthy summer salad that is not only light and satisfying, but can be made and ready in less than 10 minutes!
I wanted to make a salad that my family can have anytime hunger strikes! So, when they open the refrigerator door they can’t say “there’s nothing to eat.” They will instead go right to this colorful salad which is fresh and ready for them to eat all day long.
Morning, noon and night!
Bocconcini can be found at Costco or in any gourmet supermarket. They are delicious creamy little bite-size mozzarella balls sold in plastic containers. When you combine them with cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, basil and a touch of garlic, you’re creating a wonderful blended balance of richness, color and flavor.
No need to add any vinegar to this salad; but if you wish, a splash of balsamic vinegar can be added for more deliciousness!
Enjoy and make this salad this week, you will love it!
