Caprese salad

Tis a fancy sounding name for something so simple. Basically it's tomatoe, mozzarella, bit of olive oil and basil. It's simple and works great as a starter to a pasta dish.

What ya need:
Big beef tomatoe, the redder the juicier
Mozarrella (the one that comes in the pouches in water are the best)
Olive oil to drizzle (extra virgin olive oil is a safe bet)
Fresh Basil leaf

Slice the tomatoe into big thick slices. About a centimeter thick. Add one or two per plate. Slice the mozarella ball into slightly thinner slices than the tomatoe. Drizzle olive oil on top. Add three of four fresh basil leaves to garnish.
