Olive Caprese Salad

I was making French Dip Sandwiches and wondered what to serve with them.  So I googled (get used to it spell check- it's a word now!) just that.  "What side dish is good with French dip Sandwiches?"  This salad was one of the suggestions that came up.  Since my husband loves olives, I gave it a try.  It is very yummy and flavorful and it was perfect with a French Dip!

Olive Caprese Salad
1 1/2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, havled
Handful Black Olives, pitted and halved
Handful Green Olives, halved
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, cubed OR Grated Mozzarella cheese
2-3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Handful of Fresh Basil leaves, chopped

Mix the tomatoes, olives, and cheese together in a bowl.  Mix the vinegar, oil and salt and pepper in a small bowl and pour over the tomato mixture.  Add the chopped basil and mix.
