Staple Summer Snack: Tomato and Mozzerella

Every year, when tomatoes are in season, I am reminded of what I grew up eating. Living in New Jersey, we had a lot of Italian people around us and we always got simple but delicious food from the deli down the street. One of my favorite dishes is a deconstructed caperese salad.  Slice a ripe tomato into about 6 slices. Fill the spaces with slices of fresh mozzarella. Sprinkle freshly chopped basil over the top with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. You can add salt and pepper to taste but I find that it is good without it. For a mix up of this, slice cherry tomatoes in half, slice the mozzarella into small cubes - keeping the topping the same. It's simple, delicious and easy to make with a huge impact on your tastebuds and your eyes. Who couldn't love that?
