Fresh Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad

Wow, my 100th post!  I hope this blog has given you a chance to enjoy your gluten-free food as much as we have been doing here. This tomato, mozzarella and basil salad is a simple dish, but it compliments any barbequing you might be doing. It's a wonderfully easy, perfect summer salad.  I am posting a picture of the beautiful arrangement my  mom and brother, Ben, arranged.  All you need are a few fresh ingredients to create this lovely addition to your summertime meal.  Enjoy!

Layer on a plate:
Fresh tomatoes, sliced
Fresh mozzarella, sliced (you want to make sure it's the soft, fresh cheese)

Sprinkle over top:
Fresh basil leaves, sliced (if desired)

Drizzle with olive oil (flavoured oils work well here).
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Voila!  A lovely summer dish you can make in small or large quantities, as needed. You can also layer your basil leaves directly with your tomato and mozzarella slices rather than sprinkling on top.
