1-2 medium ripe tomatoes sliced 1/4” thick
4-8 oz Fresh mozzarella sliced 1/4” thick
1 cup fresh basil leaves
2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
1/2 tsp Sea salt or to taste
1/4 tsp Black pepper or to taste
2 Tbsp Balsamic glaze or added to taste (optional)
Start by layering slices of tomatoes on a serving platter. Tuck slices of cheese between each tomato so both are visible then tuck whole basil leaves between the cheese and tomatoes. Arrange the slices so you can see every layer.
Season generously with salt and pepper, drizzle all over with extra virgin olive oil and drizzle with 2 Tbsp balsamic glaze or add it to taste.
