Some of my favorite foods are tomatoes, basil, and cheese and this classic salad makes the most of summer’s best produce. Seasoning tomatoes ahead of time brings out even more of their sweetest flavor.

  • 1 Pint Red Or Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 Tablespoons White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 (8 Ounce) Fresh Mozzarella Ball
  • 1/4 Cup Basil Leaves
