Tomato and Mozzarella salad with Mixed Leaves

Simple yet tasty most of us love mozzarella and tomato salad.  This salad is not only delicious, it is also very healthy with calcium from the cheese and lycopene from the tomatoes.  I like to add a mix of salad leaves with mine and some olive oil to increase the nutrient content and help boost my intake of good oils / fats.  I love tomatoes with their fresh juicy pulp and studies have shown that they are great in fighting osteoporosis so should be eaten by young and old alike.  Tomatoes also have an effect in lowering cholesterol as does olive oil.  Did you know that oleocanthal found in olive oil mimics the effects of ibuprofen reducing the risk of inflammation and decreasing the risk of breast cancer and its reoccurred.  There is so much we don’t know or consider when making / eating foods but if we take that little bit more time to make our own meals from scratch and learn about the foods we eat then our food not only nourishes our body but can be used to treat it naturally helping to reduce the risk of various conditions.

For those looking for a nutritious salad that is healthy and perfect for the summer months although also great all year so around why not enjoy a tomato and mozzarella salad at home.

This recipe is simple but also adds in a few extra items to add to the nutritional content and natural health benefit of the meal.

Ingredients

2-3 handfuls mixed leaves

1.5 to 2tbs freshly coriander

2 medium tomatoes

1 mozzarella ball

Olive oil for drizzling

Method

Chop the coriander and sprinkle over the leaves.
