Bella Italia Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad

Submitted by Marla

Servings: 4-6

4 ripe tomatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
8 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
½ tsp salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp oregano
2 T extra-virgin olive oil
8 fresh basil leaves

Arrange the tomato and mozzarella slices on a large serving platter or on individual salad plates. Overlap the slices and fanning them out like a deck of cards. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and oregano. Drizzle with the olive oil.

Before serving, garnish with the basil by tearing it into pieces and sprinkling it on top of the tomato and mozzarella slices. Or you may want to leave the basil leaves whole and alternate them between the mozzarella and tomato slices. Enjoy!
