Cucumber, Tomato, Mozzarella Salad with Balsamic

I love recipes that have few ingredients but turn out so amazingly delicious. Simple recipes always seem to be the best ones to me. This salad was on the table within five minutes and we all loved it. I loved the combination of flavors and textures – the crisp cucumbers with the juicy tomatoes, and creamy mozzarella with the tart and sweet balsamic vinegar. I served this salad with the Lemon Chicken Thighs and the Roasted Cauliflower with Fresh Herbs, Parmesan, and Lemon. This salad will be a regular on our table because it’s healthy, easy, and we all loved it.

Combine the balsamic vinegar and olive oil together; mix well. Combine the cucumbers, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese together in a bowl. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Drizzle the top of the salad with the balsamic vinaigrette on top. Serve. Enjoy.

    This is like summer in a bowl! I make something kind of similar, but stir in cooked quinoa and stuff it in pita bread. Thanks for reminding me!

    I enjoy salads which are just chunks of veggies without any leafy greens. They are a nice change of pace.

    this is pretty much what I eat during july and august with a few helpings of sushi.
    one of my favs and I never ever tire of it.
    not sure why I crave this during july & august though…some say that cukes are a sign of dehydration?
