Strawberry Salad with Mozzarella and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Strawberry Salad with Mozzarella and Balsamic Vinaigrette

Makes 4 servings
Total time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

Salad

  • 6-8 cups loose salad greens
  • 24 small strawberries
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 8 big leaves of basil

Dressing

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Rip clean and dried salad greens into bite sized pieces.
  3. Roll the basil leaves into a little tube and slice thin (chiffonade).
  4. In a large bowl, toss lettuce greens and basil strips with most of the dressing (you may have to do this in two batches so as not to overfill the bowl), reserving a little to drizzle over the top at the end.
  5. Portion greens out onto serving plates.
  6. Remove the stem of the strawberry, slicing thin from top to point. Spread evenly over the four servings of salad.
  7. Cut mozzarella into bite sized pieces. I used the ovoline (little mozzarella balls in water) and quartered them. Spread evenly over the four servings of salad.
  8. Drizzle remaining dressing over the top and enjoy!
