If you LOVE basil, this is a quick, easy salad (meal) for you.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

One large organic vine tomato (or your favorite -- yellow tomatoes work great too)

Approx 8 ounces (for one serving – 2 ounces) fresh mozzarella room temperature – sliced ¼ inch thick

Handful of salad leaves – organic lettuce  (tri-color always looks good)

¼  teaspoon organic dried basil

Approximately  8 fresh organic basil leaves

Your favorite dressing – for this I used organic Italian dressing

Salt & pepper to taste
 

Directions:

Place some salad leaves on dish – sprinkle with a drizzle of dressing & dried basil.

Slice the tomato thin as you can and add once slice to salad.

Then add one slice of fresh mozzarella – adding some fresh basil to each slice.

I love this served room temperature.

Enjoy!
