Insalata Caprese

Promise me to make this easy salad in the next few weeks before the ripe, fresh tomatoes are gone...

It's most fun to be artistic with the presentation for the salad. Use heirloom tomatoes for unexpected color, arrange the plate in a geometric design, chiffonade (cut into fine strips) the basil, whatever you'd like!

Here's my version:

Insalata Caprese

sliced ripe tomatoes (if using grape or cherry tomatoes, keep whole or halve)
fresh mozzarella cheese
drizzle of olive oil
fresh basil
salt and pepper

Arrange the tomatoes and cheese artfully on a plate. Sprinkle with basil, salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil.
