Basil Tomato Salad
Tomato, fresh 1 lb
Cheese, mozzarella 8 ounces
Basil 2 fresh leaves
Vinegar 2 Tbsp
Oil 1 Tbsp

Slice tomato in 1/4 inch slices.
Cube cheese.
Roll fresh basil leaves into cylinders, and slice into thin ribbons.

Mix tomato, cheese, and basil gently in a serving bowl. Sprinkle with oil and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Refrigerate until ready to serve, at least 2 hours.

*A fancy culinary term that means roll it up and slice it into thin ribbons.
