Cucumber, Tomato, and Mozzarella Salad

This turned out to be a nice twist on a salad that I've been making for years. The fresh mozzarella added a something different to the dish. I found the little mozzarella balls at Costco. They are called mozzarella pearls. The cucumbers I used are also from Costco and are mini-cucumbers. I also seeded the tomatoes so the salad was not so juicy. The dressing should be adjusted to your tastes as I like mine with a bit of tang from the vinegar. When I make the dressing for others I add a little more water and sugar.

6 mini cucumbers sliced (or 2 regular sized cucumbers)
3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly and then cut in half
1 cup mozzarella pearls (or cube fresh mozzarella)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sugar
garlic salt to taste
pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried basil, or chopped some fresh basil to your preference
1 teaspoon dried oregano

Mix all the veggies together. Make the dressing, be sure to taste and adjust seasoning to your preferences, then toss the veggies with the dressing. This salad tastes best when cold but also is good at room temperature.
