Cool Tomato Salad

This simple salad only requires the maker to choose ripe sweet tomatoes for it to be successful. It's one of those dishes that requires little skill but looks very posh, a little care putting it together is all you need.

Serves 4

3 ripe, vine tomatoes
250g Mozzarella cheese, drained weight
10-12 Fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp Olive oil
Pinch of salt

Wash and thinly slice the tomatoes and mozzarella. Wash the basil leaves and very gently dry with kitchen roll. Layer a slice of tomato, mozzarella and a basil leaf on a large serving plate in that order in concentric circles until you've run out of salad. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately with crusty bread or as a side for pizza.
