Fresh tomato salad with buffalo mozzarella, red onion and balsamic vinaigrette
Prep Time10 mins
Servings: 4 people


  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes in different colors (I used yellow and red but purple would be a gorgeous addition)

  • ½ tbsp. coarse sea salt

  • 1 handful fresh basil (leaves and stems)

  • 1 small red onion

  • 1 ball of buffalo mozzarella cheese

  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

  • ½ tbsp. olive oil

  • Pepper
  • Fresh basil for garnish


  • Half the tomatoes and mix them with the salt. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile chop the basil and slice the onion very thinly. Mix into the tomatoes. Let sit for another 5 minutes.
  • Rip the buffalo mozzarella into mouth sized pieces. Stir them into the salad.
  • Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Sprinkle on pepper and garnish with more fresh basil leaves.
