Terri's Notes

Add any of these to kick it up or make into a salad:
8 ounces rotini (corkscrew) pasta, cooked and cooled
10 to 12 medium basil leaves, torn into pieces
cucumber, chopped

More Notes:

Instead of the oil, vinegar and seasonings, I use Newman’s Own lite Balsamic Vinaigrette. It’s wonderful!
In a pretty bowl, mix mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add salt, pepper and garlic to taste, adding more vinegar if desired. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Tastes even better the next day!
To make it a nice salad or an entire meal, add the pasta!
