  1. Directions :

  2. This salad can be arrange on one larger plate or on individual serving plates.

  3. Arrange tomato slices in a circle around the plate, then overlapping towards the center. As you are laying out the tomatoes, place a thin slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each slice of tomato. Place a whole basil leaf on top of the mozzarella cheese. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Lightly drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the salad.

  4. Serves 4 Variation:

  5. I love a bit of good quality balsamic vinegar drizzled over the salad as well. It adds a beautiful, rich, savory flavor to the mixture.
