A simple, easy, and delicious way to enjoy the best flavors of summer: basil & tomatoes!


An array of tomatoes, preferably different colors

A handful of basil

Mozzarella - fresh or packaged

Good olive oil

Sea Salt


  • Slice your tomatoes about 1/4" thick, into rounds. If the tomatoes are really big, you can cut the rounds in half.
  • Slice your mozzarella into rounds, 1/4" thick.
  • Arrange your tomatoes atop your mozarella, garnish with a basil leaf (or sliced ribbons of basil, for a slightly less intense flavor)
  • Arrange on a plate and drizzle all over with good olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt.
  • Enjoy as an appetizer or center-of-the-plate treat!
