Years ago when I first started making this salad I used regular mozzarella, I have since learned about fresh mozzarella and what a difference it makes in this salad.
I garnish with a few of the marinated olives I keep on hand in the refrigerator. This salad is a nice lunch with a good bread.
- fresh sliced garden tomatoes
- fresh mozzarella, sliced
- fresh basil leaves
- olive oil, extra virgin
- kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
