Bruschetta Salad

Can you believe it?!   Tomorrow is the 4th of July.  We say it every year…but WOW, summer flys by! 

And with that, let’s make the most of the rest of it!  There is plenty of sunshine left to be had.  🙂  As you head into one of the busiest weekends of the summer, I thought I would share with you a quick, easy, and delicious salad to share at your family gatherings over the 4th.  You are all aware that I am obsessed with fresh tomato, mozzarella, basil and balsamic…so with those flavors in mind, this salad came together!  Expect a fresh flavorful salad…which closely resembles bruschetta! 


Serves 6

  • 2 pints Grape Tomatoes (Santa Sweets)
  • 1/4 Red Onion, diced 
  • 1/4 cup good Balsamic Vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 pounds Mozzerella Balls

Cut the tomatoes in half and place them in a large bowl.   Add the onion, vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil and toss well.  
Cut the mozzarella balls in 1/2 and gently fold it into the salad and serve at room temperature.
Fresh.  Italian.  Delicious.  Enjoy!
Have a wonderful holiday!  Indulge in family…and food…and festivies!
Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.

  1. You can also toss some cubed and toasted Ciabatta bread into this and it makes a great Panzanella salad! Keep ’em coming!
