Tomato Mozzarella Salad
Husband-Tested in Alice's Kitchen
This summer salad takes less than 15 minutes to put together and tastes great with anything.
Find the ingredients, including locally-grown tomatoes, at Lost River Market & Deli. If you don't have fresh basil, be sure to have some Dorot Frozen Chopped Basil in your freezer. By the time you cut up the tomatoes and cheese, the basil will have thawed. Read more about it at http://fromaliceskitchen.blogspot.com/2012/07/no-bake-summer-lasagna.html
2 fresh tomatoes
fresh mozzarella cheese
fresh basil leaves or 2 cubes of Dorot Frozen Chopped Basil, thawed
Olive oil (optional)
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Slice the tomatoes. Slice the cheese. Layer in a dish as shown. If using the frozen basil, allow the cubes to thaw in a small dish. (This will be done by the time you've sliced the tomatoes and cheese.) Dip each cheese sliced in the thawed chopped basil until coated on both sides. Drizzle the salad with olive oil, if desired, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve.
