A fresh heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad is one of my favor summer dishes. It’s light, tasty and takes me back to my summer spent studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Since heirloom tomatoes are a summer fruit, I be sure and take extra advantage of them during these next two months. This isn’t a ground-breaking recipe, but one I love to make! The pretty colors of the heirlooms make the salad that much more appealing.
