You say tomato, I say tomahto may be a famous song by George and Ira Gershwin, from 1937 but there is a question of what to do with all those summer tomatoes or tomahtoes that are growing in the garden.

You may want to try this easy summer caprese salad. Here is what you will need:
  • 4 large ripe tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • fine sea salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
All you need to do is alternate and overlap the tomato slices, mozzarella cheese slices, and basil leaves on a large platter. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with sea salt and pepper. Enjoy! Serves 6
