Mixed tomato salad with mozzarella and basil dressing
Cutting the tomatoes in various ways - slices, wedges, halves - gives the salad visual appeal. Choose perfectly ripe ones for full flavour.
- Cut larger tomatoes however you desire and arrange them on a serving platter. Peel the cucumber into ribbons and bundle onto the tomatoes. Halve and dot the vine-ripened and cherry or grape tomatoes around the plate.
- Drain the mozzarella balls well, squeezing out any excess liquid.
- Make the dressing by combining the ingredients and mixing well. Pour half over the mozzarella to marinate. Drizzle the rest of the dressing over the salad.
- Season well and add a few whole basil leaves and parsley.
