Mozzarella, Tomato, Black Olive and Cumber Salad

Mozzarella Cheese with black olives and tomatoes in a great summer salad
Summer just screams salads, doesn’t it?  We eat salad daily during the summer, and we have so many favorite great salad recipes and variations. 
I love a great lettuce salad but sometimes I wish to get away from the plain lettuce based salad and have something completely different like this Mozzarella, tomato, black olive and cucumber salad.  

Mozzarella Cheese Salad with tomatoes, black olives and cucumbers
We added a few slivers of basil to add a little more flavor to this combination. 
 This salad may be a little higher in fats than I really like, but it’s all healthy fat.   The health benefits from the olives and the Mozzarella cheese outweigh the bad so it’s totally worth the extra calories.
