Tomato, Cucumber and Mozzarella Cheese Salad

tomato cucumber mozzarella cheese avocado salad

Aren’t you just so stoked it’s Spring ???   I just love when the supermarket smells of fresh fruits and veggies and there’s nothing like a light and crisp summer salad, especially ones that have cucumbers in them.  They are so refreshing and full of yumminess.

So today we have a great salad that takes advantage of the ripeness that only Mother Nature can provide!

It was hard to come up with a title my salad.  I didn’t want to just name all the ingredients that were in it … like ripened cherry tomatoes, crisp and crunchy English cucumbers, red onion, creamy avocado and fresh mozzarella cheese.

How do you come up with a title with all those yummy fresh summer ingredients? So I decided on a title that only uses 3 of the ingredients in its title ….  Tomato, Cucumber and Mozzarella Cheese Salad… hee hee

This cute summer dish comes together in minutes, just chop up your veggies and add a little olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar and some salt and pepper and refrigerate it until it’s ice cold.

I like to add a sprinkle of salt and pepper on top just before serving.  And I’m also not the biggest fan of red onion but I found that if you soak them in cold water for a few minutes it takes that rawness out of them.

This salad is great for a light lunch.  I had it the other day with a little tuna fish and it was delicious.  It is very hydrating so you don’t feel all bloated or guilty after eating it.
