Tomato, Olive, and Mozzarella Salad with Basil Vinaigrette

Momma: "Simple, quick, fresh, delicious!" Read More


  • 1 can black olives (large, cut in half, 6 oz. olives after draining)
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella (pearls, cut in half, or use regular fresh mozzarella and cut into pieces)
  • 1/2 cup vinaigrette dressing (I used my favorite vinaigrette, but any type of homemade or bottled vinaigrette that you like will work. A good choice would be Newman's Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing, which is widely available and has only 1 gram of sugar.)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (chopped or torn)
  • salt
  • ground black pepper

    This salad was delicious and perfect for a hot summer evening. Great idea to add fresh basil to dressing.

    This was a quick and easy side to go along with my Italian seasoned baked chicken and blanched asparagus tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. I had intended to save some tomato, olive, and moz salad for lunch, but...I admit, I over-indulged and didn't save myself left overs.
