1 large tomato
extra virgin olive oil
Rinse the tomato and cut into ¼ inch slices. Place on a plate.
Cut the mozzarella into ¼ inch slices as well and place one on each tomato slice.
Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the tomatoes with cheese.
Top each with a sprinkling each of sea salt, pepper, basil and mint.
Use fresh herbs and tomatoes from the garden to save money. The cheese does not come cheap.
I use sea salt and pepper grinders because I can easily control the amounts I use, and because they seem to have better flavor.
I’m slowly building up my organic herb and spice collection. At this point I purchase them. When I move, I plan to grow them. I’m only buying what I’ll use. These have so much more flavor than the traditional herbs and spices I’ve purchased over the years, and they’re healthier.
- Serve with soup or stew.
