Vegetarian Cherry Tomato, Mozzarella And Fig Salad Recipe

Take the popular caprese salad, an Italian favourite : tomato, mozzarella and basil salad, seasoned with salt and olive oil. Swap full size tomatoes for deliciously ripe cherry tomatoes. Add heavenly sweet, fresh, perfectly ripe figs, and serve on a giant bed of shredded lettuce, dressed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. What you get a satisfying salad lunch for a bright Summer day. Use real buffalo mozzarella if you can, it is so much tastier than mozzarella made with cows milk !
