Tomato and Bocconcini Salad

This is a very popular summer salad. It takes only minutes to prepare and requires no cooking.

This salad can be made with either fresh mozzarella or bocconcini cheese, and any variety of fresh tomato. Just make sure that the tomatoes – be they cherry, roman or beefsteak – are vine ripened and full of natural flavour.
