Slice tomatoes and mozzarella to the same thickness, whatever size you prefer is fine. I like mine fairly thick.
Roll basil leaves into a log and slice into long, thin strips (called chiffonade), or leave them whole if you prefer.
Alternate tomato and mozzarella slices in a circular pattern on your plate.
Squeeze juice of one or two lemons, depending on how tart you’d like the flavor to be, over the tomatoes and mozzarella.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Lightly pour a little olive oil over the top, but be careful not to drown it. A light drizzle is fine.
Spread basil leaves or chiffonade evenly over the top and serve.
This will serve about 4 people as an appetizer or side dish, or 2 people if you really love it. My husband and I easily eat a whole plate full between the two of us! It is so good and so healthy, so enjoy!
