1 (5 ounce) package
halved grape tomatoes
small fresh mozzarella balls
garlic seasoned croutons
balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
salt and ground black pepper to taste
A very nice, simple and somewhat different salad. I didn’t care to add the basil pesto to the dressing, so I just cut up fresh basil, chiffonade style, and sprinkled it over the salad just before serving. I used “Our Favorite Balsamic Vinaigrette,” also from this site.
Perfect. I used basil pesto that I had in the freezer for the dressing, and fresh arugula out of my garden. The man doesn't love arugula, and really only likes to eat it if I mix the greens, BUT he liked this, and he loved the dressing. The fresh mozzarella and tomatoes were just perfect for this time of year. If my garden keeps producing, we will keep eating this for sure!
Very simple and so good with this hot day!
