This is the perfect summer evening treat — the sweetness of fresh, local tomatoes is at their peak in August, so make the most of them with simple preparations. Round out your meal with grilled chicken or fish, a hearty, crusty bread and a light red wine or lightly chilled Chardonnay.

Ingredients

Salad:

  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella balls (2 ounce or 3 ounce balls of Bocancini or Ovalini) Add to list
  • 1 pound Roma or organic cherry tomatoes (various shapes and colors) Add to list

Dressing:

Preparation

Rinse tomatoes. If using Roma tomatoes, quarter them lengthwise. If using cherry tomatoes, remove the stems.

Mix together vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper flakes and black pepper in a small bowl. Add the olive oil in a slow stream, whisking constantly.

Toss mozzarella and tomatoes with the dressing and chill, covered, for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
