Tomato Caprese Salad

This turned out really good. However the kids picked out the olives and cheese and ate only those items. The flavors were good and overall it was just really tasty. I combined two different recipes into one to make this salad. It's simple and very easy to make.

Tomato Caprese Salad
adapted from Cook's Country Aug/Sept 2009 and Kalyn's Kitchen

3 cups tomatoes (cherry works best but I used regular tomato's and chopped them)
1 cup mozzarella pearls or fresh mozzarella
1 can black olives, drained (you could cut them in half or leave them whole like I did)
1 cup chopped basil
Combine the above into a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
Mix together until combined. Toss the dressing on the salad and serve.
