This is by far the tastiest thing you can do with your fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden.
It looks so simple (because it is), but your taste buds will explode and beg you for more!
- 3 vine-ripe tomatoes, 1/4-inch thick slices
- 1 pound fresh mozzarella, 1/4-inch thick slices
- 20 to 30 leaves (about 1 bunch) fresh basil
- Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
- Coarse salt and pepper
Layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each, on a large, shallow platter. Drizzle the salad with extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
If you want you can add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar too, which we did.
I highly recommend it.
