Tomato with Mozzarella Cheese and Basil Salad

This is definetly my favorite Salad and is a delicious summery dish!

2 tablespoon good quality extra-virgin olive oil

3 - 5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (we like Roma tomatoes)

1/4 pound fresh mozzarella cheese cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (mozzarella balls and disks work great as well)

6 to 8 large fresh basil leaves, sliced thin

salt to taste

Layer the bottom of a plate or bowl with mozzarella cheese and add the tomatoes.

Top with basil leaves
Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and add salt to taste.
