Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta Salad

I received the Bon Appetite Magazine and this was a must try. I admit I changed a few things, but this turned out so refreshing and yummy. I honestly, could eat the entire bowl. I love fresh produce and herbs.

Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta Salad

One and half pints of cherry tomatoes
1 container of the tiny mozzarella balls
3 TB. fresh chives
1 TB. fresh oregano
3 TB. fresh basil
salt and pepper
4 TB. white balsamic vinegar
2 TB. of good olive oil (It is really good even without oil)
3 TB. freshly grated parm. cheese
1 lb. Orchettia pasta

1. Boil the pasta until al dente about 10 minutes. Let cool.
2. Add the oil, vinegar and whisk. Add the herbs, salt and pepper. Add the tomotoes and mozzarella.
3. Add the pasta and toss to combine. Top with fresh parm. Serve.

This is so good. I can't wait to have some for lunch!


  1. Deliciously good lookin' salad. I love pasta salads. Love tomato and mozzarella together.

  2. This is definitely a favourite of mine too!

  3. The looks so good! I bought those tiny mozzarella balls at Costco. They froze-boring story. I will report back that thawed mozzarella (at least this small) tasted like I was chewing on a bouncy ball!

  4. Looks delicious. Anything with mozzarella and tomatoes gets my vote! I make something similar and call it "caprese pasta." Don't you love summer tomatoes?

  5. This looks light and refreshing. Perfect for summer!


Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
