Tomato Tomato

They have finally arrived... TOMATOES!
The Food and Pottery Connection ~

Insalata Caprise
Prep time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4 as a side dish, 2 as a veggie main course. Double, triple, quintuple as you like.

2 large, fresh tomatoes, or about 1 lb total
1 cup fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
Good olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cut the tomatoes into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Arrange tomato slices on a platter***. Top each with a piece of mozzarella, and some basil. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve. Gorgeous.

Served up by Tod Dimmick,

My Lily of the Valley Platter *** will show off the red of the tomatoes and green of the basil and be just the right size for a side dish salad for 4.
