Strawberry & Mozzarella Salad

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 heart romaine lettuce, torn or cut into bite-sized pieces (3 cups lightly packed)
  • 1 8-ounce container of strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, diced (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, cut into ribbons

Directions

In a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar salt and pepper. Place the lettuce in a large bowl and toss with half the dressing. Place the lettuce onto 4 salad plates.

Toss the strawberries with the remaining dressing and place 1/4 of the berries on top of each mound of lettuce. Top each with cheese and sprinkle with the basil.
