Fresh tomatoes and deli-sliced mozzarella cheese make this a special, but easy and healthy dish. Have the tomatoes and cheese at room temperature for maximum flavor. This recipe works well in diabetic menus.
2 ounces reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, cut into very thin slices
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/4" slices
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar or the equivalent in artificial sweetener
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Cut sliced cheese into pieces that are about half the size of the tomato slices.
On a large plate, alternate slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese. Arrange slices so that the top half of each tomato is not covered with cheese.
Mix remaining ingredients, and drizzle over salad, just before serving. Serve at room temperature.
