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
This is such an easy salad, but it is soooo good!! This is really not a salad you need a recipe for, but I did take this recipe from Rachael Ray here. I love that you can present it is so many ways! I think it is such a pretty salad, and tastes as good as it looks. I also like mine with a little balsamic vinegar! Enjoy!
