Caprese Salad

Here's another summer tomato salad recipe. I can't wait for tomatoes! I am noticing a few flowers on my plants where the tomatoes will be! You bet I'm gonna make this when they're ripe.

Ingredients:
Fresh tomato slices
Fresh mozarella (look for this little, roundish, treasure in the gourmet cheeses)
Fresh basil leaves
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper

Directions:
On a serving plate, alternate layers of tomato and mozarella slices. Garnish with basil leaf chiffonade (tightly bunch the basil leaves and slice them into thin strips). Lightly sprinkle with sea salt and ground black pepper. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
