Again, no recipe for this salad but it's very simple to make.
Ingredients & Preparation:
This made enough for 4 people and we had the leftovers at another meal.
- 1 large beef steak tomato, sliced
- 3 small yellow tomatoes, sliced
- fresh mozzarella (Buffalo mozzarella if you can get it), sliced
- fresh basil, chopped
- radicchio, chopped for decoration
- salt & pepper to taste
- fruity olive oil, drizzle
Cut up your tomatoes into slices. The larger tomato slices may need to be cut in half. Cut mozzarella into slices. Arrange the tomatoes and cheese in rows on a nice platter. Sprinkle with basil, salt & pepper. Place radicchio around the edges for decoration (optional and not the traditional way to serve). Drizzle the salad all over with olive oil when ready to eat. I prefer this salad to be prepared and put in the fridge for an hour or so so it can be served cold.
If you are looking for another way to present this salad, a fancier way to serve individual portions is to make a "stacked" version. Stack your tomatoes, mozzarella and basil (full leaves) and drizzle with olive oil. You can also drizzle some balsamic for added je ne sais quoi.
