|Fresh tomato and mozzarella on a bed of watercress|
This salad is a delightful alternative to the traditional mozzarella, tomato and basil version. At my local market, the watercress looked so fresh and appealing that I had to pick some up and use it as a substitute. Also, the yellow tomatoes were are a fantastic addition to make this salad even more colorful and add a variety of flavors to the mix. It turned out delicious and I had to share it with you.
Fresh sliced mozzarella
Vine ripe tomatoes
Extra virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
On a bed of watercress, arrange the sliced tomatoes and mozzarella alternating according to your preference. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Finish with sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste.
PS- to make this salad more substantial and equally if not more delicious, add slices of avocado :-)
