Where salad is coming from

Summer heat during day but wonderful evenings are perfect for the friends gathering. Traditional BBQ and salads are in favor right now! Fresh produce is on sale now at the stores and we love to try some new recipes over light dinner with friends. Some ingredients are coming straight from the garden, and it can not be fresher or tastier!

So I'd like to share with you the salad recipe we enjoying now pretty often since we have first tomato harvest this year. We like it with grilled chicken and a glass of chilled Pinot Grigio but you can have it your way.

(you can change the quantity of ingredients - after all, you know what taste you like!):

3 ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/2 cup red onion, diced, soaked in cold water for about 20 minutes and drained
1 cup fresh mozarella cheese, chopped
10 sweet basil leaves, diced
sunflower oil
red wine vinegar
salt & pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and enjoy :) Please let me know how you liked it!

You can taste one italian similar salad: Mozarella, tomatos, basilico and olive oil extra virgine. It's named Insalata Caprese. We cook it often in summer
