Another quick snack: Bocconcini and Tomatoes Salad

This one’s another easy snack: a simple tomatoes salad with Bocconcini cheese. Got a small container of Bocconcini cheese from Linda’s Market for around $3, which was good for a 4 portions salad.

Ingredients: 200 gr. Bocconcini cheese, 4 tomatoes, 2 green onions, fresh basil, salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. Optional, 2-4 Kalamata olives, 1 boiled egg, 4-5 lettuce leaves.


  1. In a small container, mix 1-2 tbsp olive oil with 2 tsp balsamic vinegar. Finely cut 2-3 leaves of fresh basil, add salt and pepper to taste, and mix well.
  2. In a salad box, mix sliced tomatoes with the green onion (finely chopped). If using lettuce, toss that in as well.
  3. Add oil and vinegar mixture and mix well.
  4. Add Bocconcini cheese (cut in halves), Kalamat olives and the sliced egg.
