Insalata Caprese/ Sweet summer salad

Insalata Caprese means- Salad in the style of Capri (it's an island near Naples). 
Insalata Caprese!!!
      This is the peak season for tomato and basil, perfect time to make this colorful, easy breezy summer salad. The sweet and fresh, vine ripen tomatoes (from our neighbor- friend's garden) and a bunch of  fresh basil leaves gives this dish a crisp freshness. 
2                 tomatoes
6 oz            soft mozzarella cheese
1 tbs           extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp           pepper 
few             small basil leaves
salt to taste
1. Cut tomatoes and cheese into thin slices.
2. In a service plate arrange the tomato slices separately and place the cheese slices over it.
3. Sprinkle pepper and salt, drizzle the olive oil over the tomatoes and garnish it with basil leaves. 
love the colors!
