"The taste of any simple tomato-based salad is dependent on the quality of the tomatoes." Yotam Ottolenghi
You hardly need a recipe for this classic salad, but its success depends on the very best quality ingredients. This is where you want to use your very best full-flavored extra virgin olive oil, and I like the tomato to be perfectly ripe and super cold. I will usually chill the plates and assemble the recipe at the last minute.
Servings: 2 | Serving size: 1 salad
Cooking time: 15 minutes
This recipe can easily be multiplied but does not make good leftovers.
Layer the mozzarella slices alternating with the tomato slices and a whole basil leaf in a line or circle on a salad plate.
Chiffonade the remaining basil leaves and sprinkle over the top.
Top with olive oil, vinegar, and pepper.
Serving size: 1 salads
