Caprese Salad

Italian food is so good. And this salad is probably the easiest thing I've ever made. Thanks to Steve for the idea.

Fresh Basil
Bread (Italian Herb with 3 Cheese Bread from Trader Joe's)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Pick off the basil stems and only use the leaves. Slice tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick. Slice mozzarella about 1/4 inch thick. I bought the kind of mozzarella from Trader Joe's that looks like a white ball. They have larger ones too that are more like logs. Slice bread very thinly and place desired amount in toaster oven. Toast until they are as hard as croutons. Place on plate similar to picture once toast is ready. Drizzle desired amount of olive oil onto salad. For variation, use capers. See other variations here.
