Italian -Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil salad

I would like to share one of my favorite salads. Summer is tomato and basil season, and there is nothing better than a beautiful garden red tomato with fresh basil and fresh mozzarella cheese, a loaf of Italian bread drizzled with olive oil. I also love to serve this with a mixture of fresh flat leaf parsley, basil, garlic & olive oil spared.

Italian-Tomato, mozzarella and basil salad
8 oz whole milk mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup basil
1 large tomato
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup parsley
1 tbsp kosher salt
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


Slice the tomato into ¼ inch thick slices. Slice the fresh mozzarella cheese into ¼ inch thick slices. Chop the garlic, flat leaf parsley and ¾ of the Basil into a very fine mixture. Put in a bowl with ptarmigan cheese. Add ½ the olive oil and kosher salt, mix well. Cut four slices of Italian bread into ½ inch slices and drizzle the rest of the olive oil on them. Arrange your tomato and Cheese in your large plate and put the spread in the center. Arrange the bread on the top edge.
