Best Tomato Salad

Fresh tomatoes (sliced)
Fresh Basil (finely minced)
Fresh Oregano (finely minced)
Fresh mint (finely minced)
3 Tbsp good quality extra virgen olive oil
1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
½ Tbsp Lemon juice
1 tsp pesto
4 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
¼ red onion (finely sliced)
Mozzarella di buffalo (thickly sliced)
3 oz blue cheese (crumbled)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

1, Arrange the sliced tomatoes on a large platter, a little overlapping with each other. Arrange the slices of mozzarella on top, dispersed amongst the tomatoes.

2, Sprinkle the herbs over the tomatoes and mozzarella.

3, Combine the oil, lemon juice, vinegar, pesto and garlic in a bowl. Sprinkle over the tomatoes.

4, Sprinkle the red onion and crumbled blue cheese over the salad. Season to taste.

5, Leave for several hours so that the tomatoes can take up the juices.

In Italy, we call this salad caprese. In the Italian version, it is just mozzarella di buffalo, tomato (pomodoro), balsamico (balsamic vinegar), olio (olive oil), basilico (basil).

A midwest version of the mozerella/tomato salad: buy a bag of cheese curd (Mozerella type). Cherry tomatoes. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half, put in a bowl with the mozerella curds and some basil. Toss with olive oil. This is great because cherry tomatoes are the only tomatoes that taste good through the winter, so it is perfect for holiday get togethers. If you can't get fresh basil, buy a dry Italian herb mix, just make sure you mix it and the olive oil in advance. And yes, you can use your favorite Italian dressing.

This sounds really good. BTW, you live in a beautiful part of Illinois.

Yes, I do. Right now is case in point. Beautiful. We've lived all over, and spent three years in an RV looking for the perfect retirement town. Fell in love. Our friends give us a hard time for selecting a place they didn't know existed, but when they visit, they fall in love with Galena as well.
