Ingredients

8 ripe tomatoes

22 ounces or 8 small balls mozzarella cheese

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

16 tablespoons olive oil

2 bunches fresh basil, leaves picked and cleaned

Directions

  1. Rinse the tomatoes and cut them into slices, removing the stem portions. Slice the mozzarella balls. Place the slices of mozzarella and tomatoes to fit the plate, alternating the slices as if you were to cover the center of the plate with a roof of shingles. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with the olive oil.
  2. Serve garnished with fresh basil leaves.
