Tomatoes with Mozzarella, Basil, and truffle

I had a whole pile of tomatoes on my counter.  I stole them from my mom’s greenhouse, as she’s away for the week.  Don’t tell on me.

I sliced them up, sprinkled on the secret ingredient (some amazing truffle salt I got in Seattle), added torn basil and mozzarella, and drizzled on some balsamic vinegar.

Oh man.. If I ever run out of that truffle salt, I’m not sure what I’ll do.  Thank goodness it can be purchased online!  And whatever will I do when I no longer have fresh basil on my deck?

Tomatoes with Mozzarella, Basil, and truffle

  • 1/5 cups sliced tomatoes (any kind. locally grown are of course best)
  • a pinch of 10% black truffle salt
  • 1 oz mozzarella cheese, broken up
  • a handful of basil, torn
  • 1.5 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Slice the tomatoes and lay them on your plate.
Sprinkle over the truffle salt
Throw on the basil leaves and the cheese
Drizzle the vinegar across everything
Let it melt in your mouth

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    Oh my, I’ll pretend I can’t tell that you didn’t use mozzarella di bufala in that amazing looking dish. I like your pictures :)
