A CookTale

With Fall lurking, this is the perfect way to keep the memory of Summer alive.
Simply, the Heirloom Tomato is combined with fresh Basil leaves and Mozzarella. One caution, do nothing to the Tomato until serving time except to slice it and place the slices on a paper towel to drain. Just before dinnertime add them to a platter, add Salt, the EVOO and the Basil leaves. By doing this, the serving plate will not not be saturated with Tomato water.


1 Large ripe HeirloomTomato (thickly sliced)
Fresh Mozzarella
1 TB of EVOO
12 Basil Leaves
Kosher Salt


1. Once the Tomato has properly drained, add the slices to a platter.
2. Top with  the Basil Leaves & the Mozzarella.
3. Just before serving time, add the Salt & the EVOO.
4. Seperate into two plates & serve.
