Because this salad is so simple, fresh, top quality ingredients are important. Please use home grown tomatoes. If you are not growing your own, go to a local farmers market. Heirloom tomatoes are more expensive, but definitely worthwhile. Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do, I would appreciate feedback, Thanks ! ZWT REGION: Italy.
- On a large platter, arrange cucumber slices on rim of platter, slightly overlapping and alternate and overlap the tomato slices, mozzarella cheese slices, and basil leaves.
- Drizzle with olive oil. Season with sea salt and pepper.
You did very good when you adopted this recipe. It is so simple and oh so delicious. I used fresh garden tomatoes, 1 red and 1 yellow along with fresh garden basil. The recipe reduces easily to feed 2 and with my tomatoes beginning to really ripen, I can see myself making this frequently during the summer. Made for *ZWT4*
This was great! I used fresh basil from my garden and halved boccochini mozzarella balls and boy, was this ever yummy. Made exactly as directed it was also a very pretty addition to our BBQ yesterday! Not only beautiful and tasty, but also very simple to make. Made for ZWT4.
