Okay, my salad doesn’t ever look like this, because I don’t arrange my salads to look pretty. But I love this salad. It’s one of my favorites. I usually don’t add the cheese, simply because I prefer it without, but it’s still good with.

I prefer basil fresh from the garden, but you can get it from the store. If no room for a garden, then buy a plant and put it on the windowsill. Same with tomatoes. Anyway, here’s the recipe:

Tomato and Basil Salad

  • 2 cups of fresh basil, washed and torn
  • 1 container of cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced (optional)
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, torn (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste (optional)

Dressing

  • 1 toothpick Basil essential oil
  • 10 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp raw honey

When I say one toothpick, it means stick your toothpick into the essential oil bottle and swirl it into the olive oil. If a recipe calls for more than one toothpick, use clean toothpicks for each one so as not to contaminate the essential oil.
