Traditional appetizer, but also makes a great main dish on a hot summer day. Feel free to add cooked eggplant and/or zucchini slices to this dish to make it heartier.

Directions

  1. Cut roasted red peppers into 16 large pieces. Starting at the edge of a serving platter, place a slice of tomato, a basil leaf, a slice of mozzarella cheese, a piece of roasted pepper, and another basil leaf. Continue in that pattern, forming a spiral from the outside in, until all the ingredients have been arranged; salad should end in the center of the platter. Drizzle the salad with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and black olives.
  2. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Easy and on so tasty with fresh summer tomatoes and basil. A good balsamic would be great to really finish this along with a good hunk of bread or foccacia.
