I made this up on the fly!! I wanted a quick side to go with my veggie and tofu stack and I thought a cold salad would offset the hot veggies nicely. I chose to smash the mozzarella so it was more distributed and easier to eat on bread. This was awesome.
Smashed Caprese Salad
Yield: 2 servings
1/2 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 ball of fresh mozzarella

Combine the tomatoes and basil, smash the mozzarella in your fingers and sprinkle over the tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and season with S&P. Serve as a side salad or on grilled bread.
