Grape Tomato Mozzarella Salad

Linda Haas created this fuss-free recipe after tasting something similar on a cruise. It makes a speedy and summery, light bite at home in Tenmile, Oregon. LINDA’S TIP: “To make it even lighter, use a fat-free Italian dressing.”

    I used a more expensive mozzarella and that really made it good. I wish there were a homemade dressing recipe included.

    I added thinly sliced mini sweet peppers and used mozzarella bubbles instead of sliced mozzarella. I served this at a book club lunch - everyone asked for the recipe!
