Bright summer salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, mozzarella, and basil, tossed in a tangy-sweet vinaigrette.


  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. grape or cherry tomatoes, halved, about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 (8 oz.) container small mozzarella balls, halved
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced basil
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper



  1. In a large bowl, combine the cucumbers, tomatoes, mozzarella, red onions, and basil.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, and honey. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add to the salad and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately.


  • Leftovers: Store leftover salad in an airtight container. Cucumbers will not be as crunchy but the overall salad will be fine for up to 2-3 days.
