    Default Tomato, mozzarella and basil salad

    A simple classic that never goes out of style and always tastes wonderful. Home-grown tomatoes are best, but any fresh ripe tomato will do.

    Fresh tomatoes, sliced
    Fresh basil, leaves carefully chopped as not to bruise
    Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
    Extra virgin olive oil
    Balsamic wine vinegar
    Salt and pepper

    Assemble the salad with slices of tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle extra virgin olive oil over the salad. Add a dash of vinegar and a very light sprinkling of salt and pepper. For a completely different flavor, you can substitute the mozzarella with thin slices of Parmesan.

    Right on, that's what they call it in Europe and I ate a lot of it while I was there.

    This is my favorite summer meal. Little bit of bread and some wine. Perfect.
