Serves: 1 tomato per person

1 ea Heirloom tomato
1 ea Basil leaf

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Directions: Wash core and slice some heirloom tomatoes, such as German pink, brandywine, green zebra, black krim, chosen for their varied colors. Layer them, alternating colors, with whole basil leaves and slices of real Italian mozzarella (not the American “part skim” kind, the little white balls that come packed in water).
  2. Drizzle this with extra virgin olive oil, a little salt and cracked black pepper, and you’ve just made a classic salad known as “Caprice.”
  3. For a simpler version, simply chop and toss all the ingredients together.
