This calls for just 3 simple ingredients:
- Mozzarella cheese
- Basil leaves
The smaller, gourmet mozzarella balls are preferred. I also like to use grape or cherry tomatoes.
Layer the ingredients however you prefer. I like to make them into bite size portions, place them on a large platter, then drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt.
A simple and absolutely scrumptious burst of pure summer in your mouth!
When cooler temperatures hit, you can adapt a cozier version of this recipe by placing tomato and mozzarella on a slice of french bread, toasting briefly in the oven, then adding a fresh basil leaf before serving.
