This traditional Italian appetizer is easy to prepare and makes an impression at parties. It is also delicious served with a pasta meal. Make it with fresh homegrown tomatoes and basil.

2-3 large vine ripened tomatoes
4 oz. Fresh Mozzarella
Handful of fresh basil
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar (optional)

Slice the tomatoes into thin slices and arrange on a platter. Slice the mozzarella into thin slices and place one slice on each slice of tomato. Roughly chop basil and sprinkle it over the tomatoes and basil. Salt and pepper the tomatoes and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Enjoy.
