Fresh Mozzarella Salad is a full-flavored salad that you can put together in just a few minutes.

It’s a mix of fresh mozzarella cheese balls, seasoned olives, cucumber, tomatoes, onion and basil.

Now, you can buy preseasoned olives in reclosable containers or bags. Use what you need and store the remainder in the refrigerator. I have seen the green and black varieties.

All the flavors of summer are highlighted in this colorful salad.
