Everybody’s favourite! My friend
Wash the tomatoes and cut them into thickish slices. Slice the mozzarella into similar-shaped pieces.
Arrange the tomato and mozzarella slices alternately on a platter, working round the edges in a circle. Fill the centre if you have enough slices left over.
Scatter with the basil, then dress with oil and salt and pepper to taste. Serve at once, or after no more than 30 minutes.
