A Lovely, Fresh Salad That is Easy to Prepare

It is that time of year. BBQ’s, yard parties and the like are in full swing. My friend Dianne hosted a lovely backyard soirée at her house Saturday evening. Before her BBQ, I decided to bring my summer pasta salad. It is tried, tested and true, not to mention easy to prepare. Last minute, I changed my mind and brought a lovely, light salad I found via Pinterest. Gotta love the convenience of Pinterest.

Bocconcini and Tomato Salad:

You will need:

I box of cherry tomatoes. After washing, chop your cherry tomatoes in halves and add to salad bowl.

You will note that some of the bocconcini is a bigger size in the photo. Make sure you buy the mini size. I bought one regular size tube, and had to end up cutting the regular size in halves.

Next add 2-3 tbsp of balsamic vinegar, and 2-3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.

Add some finely chopped fresh basil to salad. Salt and pepper to taste comes next. Mix everything well in your salad bowl. Place in fridge and let chill before serving.

There you have it. A simple summer salad that will surely please the masses.
