This quick salad was what I came up with to accompany some pizza at another impromptu Sunday get-together at Jonathan’s. I had rehearsal and some quality time with the cast so whatever I would bring would have to be quick and easy. All the ingredients were at my house!
For the salad:
Fresh mozzarella – larger size, cut into slices
Campari tomatoes cut into thin slices
Add the arugula to the bottom of a bowl and top with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil – alternating each and then chopping some fine for the center for a nice presentation
For the dressing:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 and 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
approximately 1 tablespoon real, natural maple syrup
Combine all ingredients, shaking before using
I added maple syrup to cut some of the taste of the vinegar. It was pretty ‘bitey’ without it.
