Tomato Slices with Mozzarella Cheese


I love trying new things, and this is one of the recipes my nephews and I enjoyed for the first time last week. It is simple to prepare. I purchased a block of Mozzarella which was used in more than one recipe.
(Update 2017) I used to eat a lot of cheese, but not so much these days. It does not fit in with the Paleo lifestyle I’m trying to create for myself, but that isn’t to say I will never have cheese again. Once-in-a-while, I’ll have some in a salad or something, but not every day, week, or even month.

Ingredients

1 large tomato

mozzarella

extra virgin olive oil

sea salt

pepper

basil, crushed

mint, crushed

  1. Rinse the tomato and cut into ¼ inch slices. Place on a plate.

  2. Cut the mozzarella into ¼ inch slices as well and place one on each tomato slice.

  3. Drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the tomatoes with cheese.

  4. Top each with a sprinkling each of sea salt, pepper, basil and mint.

Tips

  • 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.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with soup or stew.
