  • 4 medium tomatoes ripe, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella sliced 1/4 inch rounds
  • 20 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon flaky sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic glaze


  • Arrange salad by layer layering slices of tomatoes alternating them with mozzarella slices and basil leaves, on a large, shallow platter.
  • Drizzle the salad with olive oil, balsamic glaze and season with salt and pepper, to taste.


  1. Leftovers: This recipe is definitely best enjoyed fresh, but you can still eat it the next day if there are some leftovers. I wouldn't keep it any longer than that, as the tomatoes and basil will begin to become soggy.
  2. Make ahead: If you want to make this salad ahead of time, simply slice the tomatoes and cheese. Assemble the salad right before serving. It is so easy to throw together! Sometimes I will slice up a tomato, a few slices of cheese, and just have a single-serving salad with my dinner or lunch.
