The vibrant colors and flavors of this salad add pizzazz to any meal.
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
½ cup chopped unpeeled cucumber (English, or hot house, preferred)
¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
¼ cup chopped red onion
¼ cup chopped fresh basil
¼ cup shredded reduced-fat four-cheese Italian blend
2 tablespoons plain rice vinegar
1½ teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon olive oil (extra-virgin preferred)
1 small garlic clove, minced
In a medium bowl, stir together the salad ingredients.
In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the salad. Toss lightly to coat. For peak flavor, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour before serving.
Cook's Tip: If the Italian cheese blend isn't available, you can use low-fat mozzarella cheese. You'll miss out on a pleasant smoky flavor, however.
