This is the perfect hot weather salad. I buy a thick slice of ham at the deli counter. I used mini-mozzarella, but a regular one, cut or torn into chunks would work as well.
I used both purple and green basil.
Substitute smoked turkey breast for the ham.
You could add anything else you have lurking in the pantry: olives, white beans, sweet corn. We kept it simple and served it with a baguette.
