Tomato, mozzarella and basil salad

Last night I was hit by a thought, a mood, whatever: I must have tomato, mozzarella and basil salad. As if possessed, I grabbed my keys, ran to the local Schucks, and bought the prettiest tomatoes and freshest mozzarella I could find. They only have one type of fresh basil available, so I couldn't be choosy there.

Anyway, it was yummy. If you are hit by the same bug I was, make sure to drizzle it in extra virgin olive oil and douse it with a generous helping of black pepper.

*January 16th update: My new friend, Megan, has graciously pointed out that I am missing balsamic vinegar in this picture. That I forgot an entire ingredient (the one that makes it really yummy) is a testament to how forgetful I'm getting in my old age! Thanks for the reminder, Megan, I needed it! :)

I like to add just a splash of balsamic to the plate when I have this. :)
