Thickly slice a couple of tomatoes...if they are heirlooms or you have a variety of colors, all the better.
Slice the best-quality mozzarella you can get your hands on. Although I will confess, when tomatoes are wonderful, I can even settle for the stuff you can easily find at the supermarket. You'll want one slice of mozzarella for each slice of tomato. And a serving will be 2-3 slices of each.
Overlap the slices on your plate. Drizzle with high-quality olive oil and scatter some shredded fresh basil on top. Season with flake salt and freshly cracked black pepper. If you are so inclined you can add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar...I skip it. I feel like it overwhelms the tomatoes, the stars of this delicious show.
