This simple summer salad is probably one of my favorite salad recipes ever. I just adore the taste combination of sweet tomatoes and basil with the tang of balsamic vinegar and the creaminess of the mozzarella cheese. Plus, it’s an incredibly fast & easy dish to make, and it’s pretty diet friendly. It’s also a great way to get some vitamins, calcium and antioxidants into your diet! And each serving has just a 3 Point Total (5 Point Total for two servings). So, while you can’t go hog wild and eat the whole thing, it’s still a healthy, diet-friendly salad to enjoy in controlled portions. This tasty tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad makes a great healthy side dish recipe to serve along with a hearty sandwich or healthy grilled chicken. Though, it’s such a versatile recipe, you can really serve this with just about any meal. It also makes a great appetizer recipe!
