So I can't take any credit for this- it is my husband's creation. He's been making it all summer and it is sooo good. It's also very pretty. :)
(for one salad)
1 tomato (we've been using vine-ripened)
1-2 oz fresh mozzarella
Fresh basil (to taste)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Cut tomato into approximately half-inch slices. Layer tomato, slice of mozzarella, and basil. Season each slice of tomato to taste. Once you've stacked the ingredients, drizzle the oil and balsamic vinegar into the bottom of the bowl.
Note: we've found that the Publix mozzarella from the deli is the best for this salad.
