Recipe Detail Mozzarella and tomato

Mozzarella and tomato

Mozzarella cheese is used in a lot of the recipes, but here it is the main ingredient. This simple dish heightens the flavor of ripe summer tomatoes and may be served as a first course or as part of a buffet. During the winter I use thin slices of sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil in place of fresh tomatoes.



Cut the mozzarella and tomatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Arrange on a serving platter, alternating slices of mozzarella and tomatoes. Place the basil leaves between a few of the mozzarella and tomato slices. When ready to serve, drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
