Mozzarella and tomato salad

  • Slice fresh mozzarella in 1/4″ slices and arrange on a plate. Use fresh mozzarella if possible. You can usually get it at the local supermarket. It’s much softer and whiter with a more delicate flavor.
  • Slice fresh red ripe tomatoes into 1/4″ slices or thinner. Place on the top of each mozzarella slice. The redder the tomato the better. Try Jersey tomatoes in August. They are the best.
  • Take fresh basil leaves, cut them with a scissors so they are strips and sprinkle on top of the cheese and tomatoes. I buy a little basil plant for the summer and either plant it outside or keep the pot by my kitchen window. Fresh picked basil and an extraordinary taste and so easy to grow in your own home.
  • Drizzle a fine quality virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top.
  • Add salt and pepper as desired.
  • Serve with fresh Italian bread or bread sticks

Can’t go wrong here. A perfect summer salad recipe.
