Servings: 4 servings
Calories: 41kcal


  • 1 medium heirloom tomato
  • 4 small pinches Himalayan sea salt, optional
  • 4 slices cashew cheese mozzarella, such as Miyoko's Creamery brand
  • 4 to 8 basil leaves


  • Slice tomato into four slabs; sprinkle each slab with a pinch of salt.
  • Arrange sliced mozzarella and basil leaves on top.


  • These tomato–cheese–basil delights are also marvelous when drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and/or authentic balsamic vinegar.
  • Miyoko's Creamery brand cashew cheese is perfect for this recipe because the texture is very similar to fresh mozzarella.
