I love summer.  It’s my favorite time of year!  One of my favorite summer food combinations is fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and fresh mozzarella.  Yum!  I could eat about anything with this combination!  At the farmers market this year there are several people who have grown organic hot-house tomatoes.  Such a simple and delicious recipe, it gives you the best flavors of summer!  For Mother’s Day, Nate picked up fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and fresh mozzarella and made me these little appetizers…

Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Deliciousness!

Sliced tomatoes

Fresh mozzarella – cubed

fresh basil leaves, torn

Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling

freshly ground black pepper

I didn’t include amounts on this recipe on purpose, as you can use as much or as little of each ingredient as you like!  Assemble your toothpicks, or layer pieces on a plate, as you prefer.  Drizzle a thin layer of EVOO on top, and sprinkle with black pepper.  Good luck saving room for the rest of your meal!
