Bocconcini Caprese – Tomato Mozzarella Salad

by Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime


This is one of my favorite summer salads and I always look forward each Spring to the time when tomatoes will be getting ripe enough to make this. It can be tossed together in a few minutes and really doesn’t need to marinate, although you could if you wished. But I don’t really like refrigerating my tomatoes as I think it takes away from its texture and flavor.

The bocconcini mozz are smallish and round. You could easily substitute a larger knob of buffalo mozz and just cut it into cubes without noticing it much.

In any case, no matter which type you use, I am sure this will be a summer favorite in your home too, if it is not already!
