a classic.

Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella and Basil Salad
The key to this very simple salad is fresh quality ingredients

2 cups summer fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 loosely packed cup of torn summer fresh basil leaves
1 cup fresh mozzarella, torn into chunks and shredded pieces
2 tbsp good olive oil
a generous pinch of malden salt or fleur de sel 
freshly ground pepper

Combine everything in a large bowl, gently tossing to coat. Let sit for at least ten minutes and up to an hour before serving. The longer it sits the more juice comes out of the tomatoes and the better it will be with a nice crusty piece of bread to mop up the tasty juices!
