I’m always on the look out for easy and elegant recipes for entertaining (or just for the hubs).  When I saw this recipe, I was two steps out the door to the grocery store for mozzarella cheese.  This is seriously super easy to make yet aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  Got a hot date coming over? Make this as a starter and he/she will fall head over heels for you. =)

Ingredients:

Big tomatoes

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh basil leaves

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Sea Salt

Balsamic Glaze
