i have a recipe very similar to this and it comes out so good...the flavors compliment each other very well. the only thing i would do different with this dish is to brush the tomato slices with a little olive oil before topping with the basil mixture. you've got a winner!

This is really good and easy recipe to make. This is a recipe I make at least once a week in the summer when the tomatoes are fresh. This recipe goes with anything and everything.
