tomatoes (depends on the size, I used one huge tomato)
basil leaves, a handful
sea salt, pepper
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella, alternate them on a big plate. Scatter the torn basil leaves, drizzle with the olive oil, season with salt and freshly ground pepper. And that's it.
I like to use Galbani maxi mozzarella, which comes as a long log rather than a ball, but by all means use a big ball or even a tub of mini mozzarella balls.
I'm looking forward to harvesting my own tomatoes, and in the meantime there are lots of tasty tomatoes from the Isle of Wight and other British localities.
We had our dinner in the garden, and this simple meal is excellent for eating al fresco.
