Caprese Towers

I can't wait until I have tomatoes on my tomato plant to use for this dish. Homegrown tomatoes are the best. When I can I pick up beefsteak tomatoes at the local farmers market. Those babies are good! This doesn't really need instructions but here they are.

Update 6/21/10: Retook the pictures for these. Still a favorite dish for the summer. Yum!



Ingredients:
Fresh mozzarella, thickly sliced
Tomato, thickly sliced
Basil leaves
Olive oil
Fresh ground pepper
Kosher salt
Directions:
Slice tomatoes and mozzarella. Stack tomato, mozzarella, then basil leaf twice over. Sprinkle generously with fresh ground pepper and a pinch of salt. Drizzle with olive oil right before serving. Another good alternative is to add a little bit of balsamic vinegar, too.

looks good C. I'm going to be starting an herb garden soon. This would be a great way to use the basil.
