THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS SALAD
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
This is one of the simplest salads of all time to create. It's from Purely Delicious and makes the perfect addition to a festive Christmas lunch. The flavour of this magnificent salad depends solely on the quality of the ingredients you use. I especially enjoy making this over the summer months, as juicy, ripe tomatoes are bountiful and at their seasonal best.
1 kg ripe heirloom tomatoes (multiple colours), sliced
2 – 3 balls Buffalo Mozzarella, loosely broken
handful fresh basil leaves
3 tablespoons avocado or olive oil for drizzling
flaked sea salt, just a scattering
Fresh crusty sourdough to serve (optional)
SLICE the tomatoes or cut into generous wedges.
PLACE onto serving platter.
BREAK up the mozzarella highly with your fingertips and mingle in amount the tomatoes.
DRIZZLE over olive oil and a little lemon juice.
FINISH with sea salt, black pepper and torn basil leaves.
Notes and Inspiration
You could use cherry tomatoes in place of Heirloom tomatoes.
