Caprese Salad

Now that all the tomatoes are perfect it's time to gobble them up with some fresh "mutzie" I know that's spelled wrong. I love all cheese any kind any texture and cheese. This happens to be my favorite way to eat mozzarella. Drizzled with some aged thick sweet balsamic vinegar...heaven!
Ingredients
1 8oz ball fresh mozzarella cheese
1 large beef steak of heirloom tomato
A handful of fresh basil leaves
salt and pepper
aged balsamic

Directions
Slice the mozzarella and tomato into equal sized slices. Layer tomato, cheese then basil leaves. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Don't forget the aged balsamic drizzle! Cover and refrigerate and extra but there most likely wont be any.
