A traditional Roman antipasto -- pronounced "kah-pray-zeh"


  1. Slice tomatoes in thick slices, salt and pepper.
  2. Slice cheese also in similarly thick slices.
  3. Arrange tomatoes and cheese on a platter, alternating and overlapping slightly.
  4. Sprinkle over all with oil, then vinegar and chopped basil.
  5. Let mature at room temperature for a few minutes to an hour before eating as an appetizer.

Excellent! We used fresh basil from the garden, vine tomatoes and good quality balsamic. Wouldn't change a thing.
