Ingredients

    1/2 pound red grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (2 cups)
    1/2 pound yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved (2 cups)
    2 avocados , diced
    8 ounces small fresh LaFe Mozzarella Cheese
    1/2 cup fresh basil , chopped
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    3 tablespoons honey , warmed
    salt to taste

     

Directions

  • STEP ONE
    In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients, except
    Mozzarella cheese balls. That is, combine halved red
    and yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, diced avocado,
    chopped basil.

  • STEP TWO
    In a small bowl, combine all dressing ingredients:
    whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey until nice
    and smooth.

  • STEP THREE
    Add the salad dressing to the large bowl with salad,
    sprinkle with a small amount of salt, and toss to
    combine. Taste and season with more salt, if needed.
    Add Mozzarella cheese balls on top only at this
    point – so that they don’t brown from the dressing.
