Recipe of the Day

Sliced Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella with Basil
2 large tomatoes -sliced about 1/4” thick
One package of Claudio or DiBruno fresh mozzarella -sliced to match tomatoes
Handful of fresh basil - amount to taste, chop rough
Extra virgin olive oil 
Claudio 25 yr. Balsamic (can use regular balsamic vinegar)
Salt and pepper

Layer alternating tomatoes and mozzarella fanning out across a plate. Lightly salt and pepper. Top with basil, tucking some under the slices of tomato and mozzarella. Drizzle generously with olive oil. Then, lightly, to taste, drizzle balsamic across top.  Serve right away. (If you make this ahead of time, wait until you are about to serve to add oil and balsamic.)

Serves 2-3.
