This makes a great, fresh tasting salad that is simple to prepare. This makes a great side dish for a BBQ, picnic or any party.

The rule of thumb ratio for a classic vinegarette is 1 part vinegar to 3 parts olive oil. With a Balsamic vinegarette, you may wish to make adjustments based on the flavor and quality of your vinegar and olive oil, so adjust to taste.



  • 1 cup fresh small mozzarella balls
  • 1 cup Heirloom cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 10 small fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 T aged balsamic vinegar best quality
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce leave torn into bite size pieces


  1. Drain the mozzarella balls
  2. Place mozzarella and tomatoes in a bowl.
  3. Add 1/4 cup and 1 1/2 T aged balsamic vinegar to a small container and whisk to thoroughly combine
  4. Drizzle the vinegarette over the tomatoes and mozzarella balls, and season with a grind of sea salt and a couple of grinds of pepper.
  5. Sprinkle with chopped basil leaves
  6. Let sit @ room temperature for 10 - 15 minutes.
  7. Place romaine lettuce leaves into a large bowl.

  8. Toss with tomato mozzarella mixture.

  9. Serve and enjoy!
