It almost feels like I am calling Summer. Spring is here, and I am not complaining. But mother nature has not quite gotten my memo about beautiful sunny days yet. I cannot wait for beautiful days where I can eat dinner outdoors while enjoying the fresh air.

Some information about the benefits of tomatoes.

Salads, in general, help us consume some of the vitamins we may need. An intensely nutritious plant, Tomatoes are full of the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene. Lycopene has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. Tomatoes are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K.

Grape tomatoes and Cherry tomatoes, multi-colored or not, are great options for salads. They are also great options for eggs dishes, chicken recipes, and pasta salads.

How to make the Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

This recipe is a favorite of mine. There are several versions of this type of salad mixed with mozzarella cheese. The combination of olive oil and spices is what makes this salad so special.

The combination is quite simple. Fresh tomatoes, onion, vinegar, herbs, spices, and olive oil. I used a mixture of salt, pepper, basil, parsley, Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil with a splash of red wine vinegar. The taste is amazing. The taste of the infused olive oil, spices, and herbs mixed with the juices of the tomatoes is just amazing.

Let’s not forget the mozzarella cheese that adds just a touch of creaminess to this wonderful combination. Use fresh mozzarella cheese for the best result.

All the ingredients are tossed together and served on a white plate or bowl to show off the vibrant colors of the tomatoes.
