This traditional Italian salad – notice how the green, white and red colours of this salad are, patriotically, the same as the colours of the Italian national flag – is so simple to put together. But it looks fab and tastes even better, with the sensational flavours of the Mediterranean. Just the thing to enjoy with a pal on a hot summer’s day…

Cucumber, Tomato, Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic

Cucumber, Tomato, Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic

by Pam on May 7, 2014

I love recipes that have few ingredients but turn out so amazingly delicious. Simple recipes always seem to be the best ones to me. This salad was on the table within five minutes and we all loved it. I loved the combination of flavors and textures – the crisp cucumbers with the juicy tomatoes, and creamy mozzarella with the tart and sweet balsamic vinegar. I served this salad with the Lemon Chicken Thighs and the Roasted Cauliflower with Fresh Herbs, Parmesan, and Lemon. This salad will be a regular on our table because it’s healthy, easy, and we all loved it.

Combine the balsamic vinegar and olive oil together; mix well. Combine the cucumbers, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese together in a bowl. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Drizzle the top of the salad with the balsamic vinaigrette on top. Serve. Enjoy.
