Tomato Basil Mozzarella Salad/ Insalata Caprese Salad

We have had a mild summer here in California and the tomatoes in the gardens are just become ripe. Happily,  it is now the season for this popular salad.


1/2 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick
2 fresh tomatoes, slice 1/4 inch think
8-10 large  fresh basil leaves
coarse salt to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
2 tablespoons STAR capers
1/4 cup STAR extra-virgin olive oil.

Alternate fresh mozzarella slices, basil leaves on a large platter with sliced tomatoes, overlapping for effect. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Sprinkle STAR capers over the top.
Just before serving, drizzle on some STAR extra-virgin olive oil
