Today’s predicted temperature in Oklahoma City is…
Well, it’s HOT!
This is my go-to salad for the hot summer days. It’s so easy to put together. Just slice up a couple things and mix it all together with a simple drizzle of vinegar and oil. It tastes like summer in a bowl.
Brettley, our live-in adopted child brought home a mix of yellow pear and cherry tomatoes from her friend at work last week. I sliced them in half.
Then I opened a carton of these.
Perline mozzarella balls. They are roughly a little bigger than a pea. I adore them!
Then I sliced up an avocado. Then I tossed all three of them in a bowl.
Then I restrained myself from scarfing the entire thing down by myself.
Now, you can make this dressing in a bowl, or you can do the lazy, hot-summer technique like me. Just drizzle your white balsamic vinegar over top of everything. Then drizzle on some olive oil. Sprinkle on some julienned basil leaves, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and toss the whole thing up.
If you haven’t tried white balsamic vinegar yet, I can warn you that it’s highly addicted, tangy, but subtly-sweet, and much less acidic than traditional red balsamic.
I love this brand.
I found the mozzarella balls at Uptown Market in Edmond, but you could for sure get something similar at Whole Foods or Sunflower Market or any gourmet market near you!
I could just eat this as my meal until these temperatures cool down! How about you! what do you like to eat in the heat of summer?
