Taking "Ten Amazing Foods" one step further!!

I'm on a bit of a recipe kick right now, so for ten Wednesdays I'll give you a healthy recipe,  one for each of the "10 Amazing Foods" from the March 30th post.

The third on my list of amazing foods is tomatoes and the recipe to go with it is my daughter's favourite:

Caprese Salad

- An assortment of fresh tomatoes, cut into 1/4 inch slices
- Fresh mozzarella cheese, (preferably Buffalo mozzarella), drained and cut into 1/4 inch slices
- Big bunch of basil
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Freshly ground salt and pepper

On a large serving platter or individual salad plates, layer alternating slices of  the tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each.  Drizzle the salad with the extra-virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.  This salad should be at  room temperature when served.

Wow, I've never even heard of this before, but it wounds very interesting...Buffalo cheese?

We had so many tomatoes in our garden last year--and will probably have more this year--so I may try this out at some point! Sounds very interesting. Thanks for sharing it!

Book is nearly filled. I will have to run out and get another one, if you keep going on like this.
