Stars and Stripes Tomato Salad

Stars and Stripes Tomato Salad

Serves 6-8



  • 3 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon agave syrup or sugar
  • 1 smashed garlic clove
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 pounds grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups or 1 pint blueberries
  • 16 oz Ciliegine mozzarella (small balls or dice up larger balls)
  • 2 Tablespoons basil, roughly chopped



  1. In a small bowl whisk together balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, agave syrup, garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper. Set aside for about 20-30 minutes so the garlic infuses.
  2. Place the tomatoes, blueberry, mozzarella and basil in a large bowl.
  3. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes and toss together (be sure to remove the garlic clove).
