Strawberry and Mozzarella Salad

I watched a lot of Food Network while I was in between work and student teaching. I saw this recipe and immediately had to make it. I ended up going to the store the next day to get all of the ingredients. This salad is SO good. I felt just a little bit of summer while eating it!

Strawberry Mozzarella Salad
Adapted from Ellie Krieger on the Food Network

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) (I just used leaf lettuce because it was cheaper)
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 (omitted - I can't find basil in the store anywhere!)


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. (I just drizzled the lettuce with all of these things instead of mixing separately)

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.
