  • 1/4 cup basil chiffoned
  • 1 1/2 cups heirloom tomatoes diced
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Prepare your ingredients by dicing heirloom tomatoes, chiffon basil (see note), and either chop up mozzarella into bite sized pieces or use the small balls of it.
  • Once all ingredients are prepared, place them in a large bowl, drizzle olive oil and balsamic over the top, toss to combine.
  • Garnish with more fresh basil, and season with salt and pepper to preference.


To chiffon basil, take your leaves and stack them on top of each other, roll them up into a single roll (like the shape of a cigarette), use your knife to cut through the leaves forming tiny slivers of basil.
