Dried Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

Try this dried tomato and mozzarella salad for those long, hot summer days and magnificent sunsets. Complement the salad with a nice, cold glass of wine and it's absolutely perfect.

This is a mozzarella - tomato salad recipe that is slightly different. The dried tomatoes give it a completely different flavoring that brings up memories of Tuscan sunsets and fun-filled days. (Well, to me, anyway).

This one goes delightfully with a magnificent sunset and a nice cold glass of wine (doesn't have to a Tuscan sunset, though it's definitely recommended).

For those long hot summer days:
