Mozzarella, tomato and basil salad
Ingredients (for a starter for 2)
- 1 Beef tomato
- 1 Ball of buffalo mozzarella
- A small bunch of basil
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Black pepper
- Slice the beef tomato and mozzarella into thickish slices and tear the basil slightly to release some of its oils.
- Arrange across the plate in alternating layers like a row of fallen dominoes.
- Drizzle the plate and salad lightly with the olive oil (extra virgin is essential for that grassy taste) and grind over some black pepper.
Try this dish with cherry tomatoes instead to appreciate the differences in flavour.
