  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar

  2. 2.Grill the sausages, with the lid closed, for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned and fully cooked. Remove from grill, and cut on the diagonal into ½ inch slices. Set aside.
  3. 3.Slice the tomatoes and place on a large flat plate. Pull the mozzarella apart, by hand, into small pieces and scatter over tomatoes. Tear the basil leaves into smaller pieces and sprinkle over the salad.
  4. 4.Top with slices sausages (and any juices), a drizzle of olive oil, a few drops of balsamic and a sprinkle of coarse salt and pepper.



• Make sure tomatoes are very ripe; you can also use a variety of tomatoes to make the salad even more interesting and colourful.

• Buffalo mozzarella can be substituted with bocconcini balls.

• Use balsamic vinegar sparingly so as not to drown out the flavours.
