Tomato, Basil and Bocconcini Salad

I was inspired to make this recipe based on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.  In the cookbook is a recipe for Evolution Tomato Salad.  With the ingredients I had at home I modified the ingredients and made a similar salad.  This is what Jamie Oliver intended I’m sure, with his food revolution, getting people to use simple and fresh ingredients to enjoy healthy eating.

Jamie Oliver’s version has black olives, cannellini beans and tuna, which would be lovely.  However, we didn’t have those ingredients, but we did have cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, cherry sized bocconcini, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar with strawberry.  The balsamic vinegar with strawberry can be purchased at specialty food stores.  Toss the ingredients together and what you get is a delicious lunch.
