Mozzarella and Tomato Salad

Sugar Free Recipe

No cooking, no fuss – just a fabulous, delicious lunch! Rich, creamy mozzarella tastes so great it’s hard to believe it will do you good. An excellent source of protein and calcium – both of which are effective fat fighters, this salad is also high in lycopene and other health boosting ingredients. If you want to pump up the protein content of this light lunch, add 1-2 hard-boiled eggs or a couple of ounces of cooked, diced, turkey or chicken.
