Mozerella, Tomato and Basil Salad Recipe

This is one of my favorite summer salads =D its so easy to make and tastes sooo good. In Italy, this is known as insalata caprese (Capri-style salad).

 4 vine firm tomatoes (I used Roma)
Fresh cuttable Mozzarella cheese (I purchase mine at Costco) cut into about 12 slices
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • **optional you can add balsamic vinegar to taste
Just mix it all together and Enjoy!!

Note:Fresh mozzarella cheese is packed in water. It has a softer texture and sweeter, more delicate flavor than the regular part-skim mozzarella that is more commonly used in cooking.
