Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Salad

Simple and always delicious,
this classic salad is the perfect summer-time
salad that showcases vine-ripen,
garden fresh tomatoes..

Besides a BLT,
this is our favorite ways to enjoy summer-time, fresh tomatoes.
In the summer, when fresh garden tomatoes are ripe and
are lined up like round soldiers on my kitchen window sill,
I grab a big glass bowl and make this salad.
