Marinated Garden Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella

Nothing beats a fresh tomato from the garden in the middle of Summer.
These Marinated Garden Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella are the perfect appetizer!

We made it back from our Florida vacation {only to have another one looming on the horizon}, but nonetheless I'm back and I picked my first tomatoes from my garden!

I felt like they took forever this Summer to turn red. Saying this I'm still waiting on my big boys to ripen. When they do I'll be inundated. I'll be up to my ears in the darn things. Until then we are enjoying these juicy red cherry tomatoes.

My 10 year old helped me pick the other night {of all the kids, she loves them the most}. I literally laid on the ground and threw them out to her. It was a jungle in there.

I wanted to create something fresh with these beauties, initially thinking about my classic bruschetta or my creamy, cheesy cherry tomato dip - but in the end settled on marinating them.

Because I'm a food blogger and of course always need to create something new, right?

Imagine living with me.

This appetizer is so simple! And fresh. Not to mention flavorful. If you love a great tomato with a tangy, zesty dressing, this dish is for you.

These marinated tomatoes are a great dish to bring to a Summer party. They only need 2-3 hours in the fridge to get all those flavors married together - BUT - if they go longer it's no problem! The tomatoes only get more flavorful.

Then when getting ready to serve, toss in chunks of fresh mozzarella - because fresh cheese pairs perfectly with garden produce. It's like a great salad without any lettuce.

And let's not forget the bread!

The day before I made this recipe my son and I went to the store {in a different town mind you} for the ingredients. Upon arriving home, I realized the beloved baguette I just had purchased {again, in a town 10 miles away} was not in my van.

My beloved son, whom is clearly in that "my head isn't connected to my body" stage of life, had left it in the shopping cart while loading up the van.


I promptly texted a photo to the husband {of the said baguette} so he'd know what I was talking about, asking him to pick another one up on the way home.

He said, "please remind me again before I leave".

I forgot to remind him.

He forgot the baguette.


So in an effort to TEACH THE SON A LESSON, they loaded back up once home and drove back to that store {again, 10 miles away} and bought another baguette.

You see, this recipe almost never came to fruition. I had to have the baguette, because it is absolutely just delicious sliced and toasted and topped with these marinated tomatoes. Absolutely stinking delicious. I'm sure you'll find that out.

I cannot wait to see how much you love this one guys!

Go pick some tomatoes. Stop at that farmer's market and buy some. Steal them from a neighbor. Make this as an appetizer or a meal. No judgements here!

Be sure to tag me on social media {@sweetsavoryeats} when you dive in, I'd love to share your photo!

  1. Now You Can Stop Your Break Up, Divorce or Lovers Rejection…Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless"
    I'm from USA. I am not sure I could have done it without you. I contacted a real spell caster that helped me change my husband’s heart to love and want me again, and he really did and now we are very happy together. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..
