Roasted tomato and mozzarella salad

Many people have had tomato and mozzarella salad before and it was cold. I always think it looks delicious, but I am not a fan of cold tomatoes.

A few weeks ago I thought… Why not make it in the oven?? I have a small love for roasted tomatoes. However, I cannot stand cold tomatoes, but if you stick them in the oven for a few minutes… I am in love! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My husband and I devoured the entire pan all by ourselves. It was love at first bite! Our kids were not a fan, but we loved it.
