Caprese with Yellow Pear Tomatoes and Basil
2-3 cups yellow pear tomatoes or cherry tomatoes or a combination, sliced in half.
Couple handfuls of fresh basil, stacked and rolled into cigar shapes then sliced into strips.
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons very good extra-virgin olive oil, more or less to taste
salt and pepper to taste.
You can mix the mozzarella, basil, olive oil and salt and pepper together a little ahead of time if you like but don't put the tomatoes in until just before serving.
Note: Never refrigerate tomatoes as they will lose there flavor.
