  • This simple salad is a version of an Italian standard. You'll find fresh, white mozzarella cheese in most delis or supermarkets — it's very different from the pale yellow, packaged mozzarella.

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • ½ tbsp quality extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ cucumber, peeled and seeded

  • 1 large Roma tomato, sliced

  • 1 oz fresh mozzarella cheese

  • 3 leaves fresh basil, chopped


Instructions: Mix the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic in a small bowl. On a salad plate, layer slices of the cucumber, tomato and cheese. Drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle with the chopped fresh basil. Nutritional Information: Per serving: 137 calories 10 g total fat (1 g sat) 20 mg cholesterol 7 g carbohydrate 6 g protein 1 g fiber 27 mg sodium
