This Tomato Mozzarella Salad recipe comes to us from Christina Barrueta, freelance food & beverage writer and creator of the award-winning Arizona-based food blog WriteOnRubee.com who recently served this salad recipe on a romantic picnic for two. She recommends using a variety of vibrantly colored, vine ripened tomatoes, (a legendary aphrodisiac). Then she adds a great mozzarella and garden-fresh herbs to really make the flavors sing.
Pair it with a well-chilled rosé and prepare for the perfect taste of summer.
