Tomato-Mozzarella Salad

2 plum tomatoes
4 oz. part skim mozzarella, cubed
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp. dried basil, crushed
black pepper and salt to taste

1. Halve the tomatoes down the length of the the fruits. Mix together with mozzarella in medium-sized bowl.
2. Drizzle EVOO on mixture.
3. Sprinkle basil, pepper, and salt on top.
4. Toss with hands until mixture is well coated with oil and spices.

Serves 2.

I found the original recipe for this on However, I REALLY like basil, and it called for 3 leaves, not crushed (per serving). Eh… not enough for my taste. 1 tsp. per serving of salad really added the extra oomph that the salad needed for me (not to mention a tad of salt, which the original recipe didn’t have.
