This recipe serves 2-4.

Ingredients

3 large tomatoes 

125g fresh mozzarella, room temperature

For the dressing

2 tablespoons good quality EV olive oil 

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

Salt, to taste

Extra

Parsley or basil

Salt 

Black pepper

Good quality EV olive oil

Crusty bread

Directions:

  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing and season with salt. Set aside.
  1. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Place the tomato on its side; using a sharp knife slice and discard the top. Continue slicing the tomato very thin (they should almost be see through). Repeat these steps with the remaining tomatoes. Place the slices on a large serving plate.
  1. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes and allow to marinate for 5 minutes. Tear the mozzarella and place on top of the tomatoes. Generously season with black pepper and salt and drizzle some olive oil over the mozzarella. Sprinkle a bit of parsley or basil and serve with crusty bread to dip in that delicious dressing. Enjoy!
