Insalata Caprese

This has become this summer's appetizer/snack/side dish of choice for us-- we've made it a ton. We've been buying the tomatoes, mozz (from Bennington), and basil at the farmstand a mile from our house. (I actually made it with a friend at her house a couple weeks ago and we picked up the ingredients at Shaw's and it was not nearly as good.)

1 or 2 tomatoes, sliced into rounds about a 1/4-inch thick
ball of fresh mozzarella, sliced the same way
small handful fresh basil, thinly sliced
olive oil
balsamic vinegar
s & p

Alternate sliced tomatoes and mozzarella, overlapping, salting each tomato slice as you go. Sprinkle sliced basil over the top. Do s & p over the whole thing. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and balsamic and enjoy.
