It's so hot here in France, and having a hot course for dinner is just impossible. So yesterday I made a very quick and simple recipe : a tomatoes/cheese salad. It's fresh, tasty, and very easy to prepare. Follow these steps to get this simple salad !

Step 1: Ingredients
So, for this recipe, you will need :
- three tomatoes (or two big ones)
- a ball of mozzarella
- toasted croutons
- olive oil
- meat spices (any spice mix you love should work. Even if my mix is for meat !)
Double the quantities if this salad is for two people.
Step 2: Tomatoes
Ok, wash the tomatoes down the sink, then slice them in thin layers.
Start putting them in a circle in the plate. Of course you can do something completely different.
I think that making something beautiful is very important. Even if it's for yourself. So be creative !
Step 3: The Cheese
Remove the water from the mozzarella.
Cut the cheese in small cubes and put them in the centre of the plate.
Step 4: Oil and Vinegar
Add a little amount of olive oil on the tomatoes and on the cheese. Add some vinegar on the tomatoes. Any vinegar you love can fit, of course.
Step 5: Toasted Croutons
Spread some toasted croûtons everywhere...
Those are ready made, and they are also flavoured.
Step 6: Seasoning
To finish, spread some spices mix everywhere. They are tasty and colourful.
That's all, you have now a nice salad !!
Step 7: Eating
I really love this salad, because it's inexpensive, easy and quick to do, and it's tasty.
You have the freshness from the tomatoes and from the cheese,
A little acid touch with the vinegar,
A nice flavors, due to the spices mix and the toasted croûtons,
A crispy side thanks to the toasted croûtons.
Just finish the dinner with a yogurt and a fruit, and that's all for a good and healthy dinner.
Thanks for reading !!
