In This Recipe
Slice tomatoes into perfectly imperfect pieces. Do the same with the stone fruit. Break apart the mozzarella ball using your fingers. Layer the tomatoes, stone fruit and mozzarella onto a shallow dish. Top with herbs and the zest of a lemon. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the salad and drizzle generously with extra virgin olive oil. Finish with a shower of Maldon salt and fresh ground pepper. Enjoy!
