Tomato Basil Mozzarella Side Salad

A simple but flavorful recipe that is definitely a keeper for the
 Summer tomato harvest.

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
8 ounces fresh "mini or cherry" mozzarella pearls (drained)
4 Tablespoons olive oil
15 or so basil leaves, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste. I used fresh ground sea salt and pepper.
sprinkle onion powder, optional

Add the cherry tomatoes and mozzarella cheese to a medium bowl. Drizzle the olive oil over the tomatoes and mozzarella. Add the basil, salt & pepper, optional onion powder and gently toss all the ingredients.

This is also great on baked chicken. Top chicken with Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad for last 10-15 minutes of baking.

Serve 4.
