Traditional appetizer, but also makes a great main dish on a hot summer day. Feel free to add cooked eggplant and/or zucchini slices to this dish to make it heartier.

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut roasted red peppers into 16 large pieces. Starting at the edge of a serving platter, place a slice of tomato, a basil leaf, a slice of mozzarella cheese, a piece of roasted pepper, and another basil leaf. Continue in that pattern, forming a spiral from the outside in, until all the ingredients have been arranged; salad should end in the center of the platter. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and black olives.

Easy and on so tasty with fresh summer tomatoes and basil. A good balsamic would be great to really finish this along with a good hunk of bread or foccacia. Read More
