  • 2 medium red heirloom tomatoes – cut in 1/4” slices
  • 1 medium yellow or orange heirloom tomato – cut in 1/4” slices
  • 1 medium green heirloom tomato – cut in 1/4” slices
  • 1 cup mixed heirloom cherry tomatoes or husk tomatoes
  • 1 lb bocconcini (baby mozzarella balls) – drained on paper towels
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup small basil leaves
  1. Arrange the tomatoes and bocconcini onto 4 plates. Drizzle lavishly with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with the basil and serve with sourdough or Italian country bread.
Tip: If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, try tomatoes on the vine, beefsteak or cherry tomatoes (or a mixture of all three). The tomatoes might not have as much sweetness as heirlooms, but the salad will be just as delicious!
