mozzarella salad

This is such an easy recipe it literally takes minutes to assemble. We did not use salt and never missed the sodium. It gets really hot in Memphis and the last thing we need is to be swollen from too much salt. Back to the recipe, this is so easy a kid could make it. Sorry we don't have a photo, this dish vanishes quickly.

Mozzarella Salad
10-12 small "balls" of fresh mozarella cheese, drained
12-15 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
one medium cucumber, peeled if waxy and seeded if it has large seeds (we used a homegrown and did not need to peel or remove seeds)
1/2 medium vidalia onion, sliced thinly
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp chopped basil
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
zest from 1/2 lemon
cracked black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and toss gently. Serve immediately and watch it disappear. Serves 4 appetizer portions.
