This is certainly a combination I've never thought about. And very easy to toss together. A new use for the basil growing on my deck.

It goes well with any fruit or cheese. In summer, however,I prefer the combo of feta cheese, tomatoes and red melon cubes.

That's not a mix of foods that would have occurred to me.

This sounds tasty. We have peaches and tomatoes at home. But not the mozzarella. I'll get some tomorrow. Also I could try it with Feta cheese for a bit of saltiness.

God bless.

Interesting - a fruit salad as tomatoes are a fruit too.
My late mum used to make an orange salad, she also made a banana salad...different but they both were tasty.
