Cherry Tomato and Bocconcini Salad with a Pesto Vinaigrette

Many of us have eaten a buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad with fresh basil and balsamic vinegar.  This is a take on that but with the pesto tossed in.  It’s a very simple summery salad.

Ingredients:

2 cups of cherry tomatoes sliced in half

2 cups of baby bocconcini sliced in half

Balsamic syrup

Pesto Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons of basil pesto ( mine had parmesan and pine nuts)

2 tablespoons of vinegar

Sweeten with a little agave syrup or some other sweetener if you like.

Directions:

Whisk together the vinaigrette ingredients, toss into the cherry tomatoes and baby bocconcini, coating well.  Place into serving bowl and finish with the balsamic syrup by drizzling over the salad.
