Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad

Tradition says that sweet basil grew all over the hillside where Saint Helena discovered the Holy cross on which our Lord died.

Here is a recipe for one of my favorite ways in which to use basil:

Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad


Tomatoes, sliced
Fresh Basil, carefully chop leaves to prevent bruising
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper


Assemble the salad with slices of tomatoes, basil leaves, and mozzarella slices. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over the salad. Then add a dash of vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

    What is on the mozzarella cheese that looks like spices?
