Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Salad

In this classic salad, infused vegetable broth provides the base for a basil sauce that can stand in for the

traditional pesto or vinaigrette. Blanching the basil leaves briefly in water brightens the color and intensifies

the flavor. Dress the salad just before serving to preserve the brilliant colors of the tomatoes.

Basil sauce:

1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves

1/3 cup vegetable broth

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil


12 (1/4-inch-thick) slices yellow tomato (1 1/2 pounds)

12 (1/4-inch-thick) slices red tomato (1 1/2 pounds)

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded fresh mozzarella cheese

To prepare basil sauce, cook 1 cup basil leaves in boiling water 15 seconds; drain. Plunge basil into ice water;

drain and pat dry. Combine basil and broth in a blender; process until smooth. Let mixture stand 2 hours at

room temperature. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Add vinegar and salt, stirring with a

whisk.To prepare salad, arrange yellow and red tomato slices alternately on a large platter. Drizzle with basil

sauce; sprinkle with cheese and pepper. Top with 1/2 cup sliced basil. Serve immediately.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 tomato slices, about 1 tablespoon basil sauce, and 1 tablespoon cheese)
