Here is a simple, but delicious, recipe recommended by Moni Frakes.  Best when made fresh, but can be made an hour ahead:

Fresh Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

Servings:  4-6


3 medium tomatoes
1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese (if all you can find is the tub, make sure to pat it real dry)
1/2 cup torn basil leaves
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
kosher salt or sea salt, to taste


Cut up the tomatoes and mozzarella into large cubes.
Add basil leaves and drizzle w/ vinegar and olive oil.
Stir lightly.
Sprinkle with a little salt.
Chill at least one hour.
Store in refrigerator.
