Basil-Balsamic Sliced Tomato Salad

This is one of my favorite ways to serve fresh, ripe tomatoes when they're in season.

This recipe is so simple, but so delicious and healthy!


2 or 3 medium-to-large fresh tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, to taste, shredded or coarsely chopped
Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
Balsamic vinegar for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Arrange the tomato slices on a serving platter.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and then drizzle lightly with the olive oil and the vinegar.

Sprinkle the basil evenly over the dressed tomatoes, and serve.

-- 3-6 servings
