Equipment

  • Large Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved
  • 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella Pearls (or use fresh mozzarella, chopped)
  • 1 15 oz can Cannellini Beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 20 leaves Fresh Basil, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar

Instructions

  • Toss the tomatoes, mozzarella and beans in olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to serve (I like to refrigerate this for a couple hours if possible since the salt will cause the tomatoes to release some juice and flavor the whole dish). Just before serving, sprinkle the basil over the top and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
