This classic salad is a fantastic summer treat, especially if you have fresh tomatoes in the garden or can find some from a roadside stand.

3 large tomatoes, slice

½ lb mozzarella cheese, sliced

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped



Lay alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella on a serving plate. Mix oil, basil, salt, and pepper with a wire whisk and then drizzle over tomatoes and cheese.
