Incredibly simple, delicious and elegant! Because this Italian tomato salad is so simple, fresh, top quality ingredients are utterly important and make all the difference. Choose local vine-ripened tomatoes that are red, juicy and flavorful but not overly soft...local heirloom tomatoes usually make a great choice. Use good quality fresh, moist mozzarella di bufala which is made from the milk of the domestic water buffalo. A good fresh cow's milk mozzarella, called Fior di latte, works well too, albeit not the preferred choice. Select tender, young basil leaves that are both fragrant and flavorful. And lastly, this salad deserves the best extra-virgin olive oil. This is the time to break out that special bottle of extra-virgin you reserved for the special occasions.
