I also made a chiffonade out of the basil, which is another way to cut the fresh basil leaves into thin strips. Simply gather rinsed fresh basil leaves, stack them together, roll them into a tube-like shape, then slice the tube thinly into strips. It gives your salad a nice, clean, uniform look.
1-8oz. Ciliegine Mozzarella
1-10oz. Sunburst Golden Tomatoes, cut in half
2 c. Fresh Garden Cherry Tomatoes
2 tbsp. Basil Chiffonade
2 tbsp. Aged Balsamic Vinegar
3 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher Salt, to taste
Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste
Add all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Serves 6-8.
