A Quick and Easy Salad

Mozzarella & Tomato Salad
(from Time To Cook: Great Meals in 10, 20 and 30 minutes)

1 lb 5 oz tomatoes
10 1/2 oz mozzarella cheese
16 fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, to serve

1) Cut the tomatoes into even slices about 1/4 inch thick. Drain the mozzarella cheese and discard the whey.
Slice the mozzarella cheese evenly.

2) Arrange the tomatoes and mozzarella slices, overlapping slightly in concentric circles on a large plate

3) Sprinkle the basil over the salad and serve with the olive oil for drizzling.

If you want to spice it up a bit, use spiced olive oil, or drizzle some balsamic vinegar.
Bon appetit!
