TOMATO CAPRESE
Maggiano's Little Italy Copycat Recipe

Serves 4

1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 large vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 cup fresh basil leaves
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

In a circular design around the side of a serving plate, alternate fresh mozzarella slices on a large platter (or on individual plates if you are doing individual portions) with sliced tomatoes, overlapping for effect.

Tear fresh basil leaves and sprinkle liberally over the slices. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.  Just before serving, drizzle on some top quality extra virgin olive oil.  Maggiano's also adds a little bit of balsamic glaze.
