Roasted Heirloom Tomato Basil Mozzarella Caprese Salad
Serves: 2-4
  • You can customize the serving sizes depending on how much of each ingredient you choose to use, therefore, no set amount of each ingredient is given.
  • Mini Heirloom tomatoes, slice larger ones; leave small ones whole
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh mozzarella mini cheese balls, or mozzarella, sliced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Himalayan Sea Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Drizzled a little olive oil in the bottom of a casserole dish.
  3. Sliced the larger mini tomatoes and leave the smaller ones whole. Add tomatoes to the dish.
  4. Salt tomatoes.
  5. Add a few basil leaves (not all of them) and roast for 30 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften. The basil leaves will turn brown; that’s okay, you will remove them before serving and replace with fresh basil leaves.
  6. Remove from oven and add mozzarella cheese balls.
  7. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese begins to melt.
  8. Remove from the oven, and remove wilted basil leaves. Replace with fresh basil leaves.
  9. Serve as is, or drizzle just a little more olive oil and just a touch of balsamic vinegar over the salad before serving.
