Farm fresh tomatoes epitomize summer and served with arugula and fresh mozzarella slices they make a beautiful salad presentation. Add your own special touch with crunchy red walnuts.
Servings: 2 servings
large fresh tomato
ball of fresh mozzarella
high quality Olive Oil
Aged balsamic vinegar
On a plate or platter, scatter the arugula, arrange tomato and mozzarella slices on top. Drizzle with olive oil (and balsamic, if you choose) and sprinkle with red walnuts.
Hazelnuts may be substituted for the red walnuts. Red walnuts have a short season and are available through Melissa's Produce and Sanguinetti Farms.
I use fresh mozzarella or crumbled goat cheese often because they are low in sodium. Feta or shaved parmesan would also be good.
