This is the most simple, and delicious salad! It is best made with garden tomatoes, freshly picked! Garden tomatoes are one of my favorite things of summer! They are so flavorful! The tomato pictured is not from my garden since they are not ready yet. This one is from Costco, their tomatos are the next best thing to fresh! This is a single serving that I made for a snack one afternoon, but a larger amount is very pretty on a platter. You can even serve it as an appetizer, just surround the salad with sliced bruschetta or crackers. MMmmm–delicious!

Sliced fresh Mozzarella (1/4 in thick or so)
Sliced tomatoes (1/4 in thick or so)
Chopped fresh basil (roll the leaves and slice thin–I did not do that this time-but it sure looks nicer if you do)
Olive oil-for drizzling
Freshly ground pepper and coarse salt (such as Kosher)
Simply alternate tomato and mozzarella slices on a plate or platter. Sprinkle on fresh chopped basil and drizzle with olive oil. Finish off with a sprinkle of coarse salt and freshly ground pepper.
