Since we are in the height of the summer and delicious local veggies are abundant I thought I would share a simple recipe using some of the freshest ingredients. Tomatoes and basil came from my pot garden, and the cheese from the grocery store.
2-3 tomatoes, local and fresh for the best taste
Fresh Mozzarella (you can find it at your grocery store, it is also called bocconcini)
6-7 Basil leaves, fresh from the garden
Slice the tomatoes and cheese to equal thickness. Wash basil and remove leaves from stem. On a plate alternate tomato and mozzarella, adding basil among the other ingredients. To finish drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and enjoy!
