It's great by itself, or you can serve it with some toasted bread drizzled with a little olive oil.
Tomatoes with Fresh Mozzarella
- Fresh, slightly firm tomatoes
- Fresh mozzarella (yes, it has to be fresh: there's a difference)
- Fresh basil leaves
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Toasted pine nuts
- Roasted red peppers
- Balsamic vinegar
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella into me dium, even-sized slices. Layer alternately on a platter (if you're using red peppers, too, layer them in as well). Drizzle with the olive oil (and vinegar), then top with torn/chopped basil leaves (and pine nuts).
