Cherry Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

Cherry Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

One of my refrigerator staples is this tomato, mozzarella, and basil salad, with herb salt, olive oil, pepper, and red onion. The mix is cool and refreshing and is a perfect meal, side, sandwich filling, salad-topper, or addition to just about any meal. The key is not to overpower the tomatoes with the mozzarella, letting the sweet and tangy cherry tomato taste shine through, with the salt and onion giving it a good kick.
