Summer Tomato Salad

Ahhhhh..... fresh tomatoes!  Nothing beats a homegrown tomato!  My grape and cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen.  After work today I went to the garden and picked a basket full of them.  They are so sweet and full of flavor ~ so I like to keep recipes simple when using them.  My favorite is to toss them with cucumber, onion, fresh mozzarella and some basil.  A simple dressing of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar finish the salad. 

This was my main course tonight - paired with a chilled glass of limoncello, it was a perfect summer dinner!
