Weeknight Mozzarella and Tomato Salad



My sons love mozzarella and tomato salad. This version has it tossed with baby romaine for an added crunch. I even slip in some thinly sliced red onion for a little extra flavor. Of course, it's delicious and goes great with any meat. It takes minutes to prepare and is so good, which means it's one of my favorites.


Ingredients for Weeknight Mozzarella and Tomato Salad:


2 heads of baby romaine, sliced

1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved

1 container Cilegine, small mozzarella balls

1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 red onion, thinly sliced

a small handful of fresh basil

extra virgin olive oil
