I love to make this salad in summer when tomatoes are at their best. Although various varieties of tomato are available throughout summer, heirloom tomatoes are my favorite.
2 medium sized heirloom tomatoes
2 oz fresh mozzarella cheese (1 small ball)
7-8 basil leaves
big pinch of salt
big pinch of cracked black pepper
1/2 tb spoon extra virgin olive oil
Slice the tomatoes into rounds. Slice the mozzarella cheese into rounds. On a serving plate, arrange tomatoes,fresh mozzarella and basil leaves. Season with salt,pepper and drizzle with olive oil just before serving.
