I am having a Wednesday Spaghetti-like event on Wednesday. I belong to a national moms group called Mothers & More and we are having a gathering to meet some our newer members. I will not be serving an entire meal, but mostly appetizers, desserts and drinks. Here's one recipe I will be serving. My neighbor has a gzillion fresh tomatoes. So many she doesn't know what to do with them all so I kindly offered to take some off of her hands. YUM - fresh, off the vine tomatoes, free of chemicals. Now if I could just make my own cheese...
My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
MOZZARELLA, TOMATO AND BASIL SALAD
4 large tomatoes
2 cups mozzarella cheese
8-10 leaves fresh basil
4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
balsamic vinegar (optional)
- Slice tomatoes and mozzarella cheese same thickness.
- Arrange the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, alternating in a circle around a decorative serving dish.
- Drizzle with olive oil (and balsamic vinegar if desired).
- Serve with salt and pepper to individual taste.
