Mozz + Heirloom Tomato Snack

IMG_2343.JPG

This is seriously the easiest of easy snack recipes. I am generally obsessed  with chilled snacks that keep well over the summer and this one, in my opinion, is THE best. With only 3 ingredients this recipe takes roughly two minutes to make, but it does improve the longer it sits (at least 30 minutes if you can stand it).

The ingredients are

  • 1/2 fresh ball of mozzarella cheese, cubed into 1/2 – 1/4 inch squares
  • 1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1 tbsp sea salt, I prefer Shell-Bee’s Bourbon Garlic Smoked Sea Salt

I absolutely fell in love with Shell-Bee’s bourbon garlic smoked sea salt years ago at a KY Proud food show in Lexington. My family and I have been loyal customers of this brand for years now because it is SO GOOD. Click Here to go to their web page and order. This post is not sponsored in any way, but I am telling you that this salt makes any dish better, especially this simple tomato and cheese snack.

If you can’t find Shell-Bee’s, I would also suggest the Jacobsen Salt Co black pepper salt. This salt brand is so good, and I absolutely love it. It can be found at Williams Sonoma and other retailers, but if you are really lucky, TJ Maxx sometimes carries it. Honestly, this sampler set is one of my favorite things right now, but for this dish…. Shell-Bee’s is the way to go.

To make this recipe all you do is chop your ingredients and stir gently to combine all three items. It is truly the simplest snack ever and keeps well for several days if stored in an air tight container. The heirloom tomatoes scream summer, the salt brings everything to life, and the mozzarella is a decadent treat. IMG_2349.JPG
