Tomato + Basil + Mozzarella on top of ANYTHING is good. Or good in anything in general. My tomatoes in my garden are FINALLY turning red, half of them anyway…. but some also have some teeth marks in them. So, I don’t trust those. I also have an abundance of basil in the garden right now and have been making lots of pesto. Pesto on top of mozzarella and tomatoes would be good too.
This is so simple to make. I just used a bottle of Italian dressing to marinade the chicken in. You could use whatever you want. Pesto would even be good as a marinade. Grill or cook the chicken until it is done and top it with some mozzarella cheese. Let that melt for a bit on top of the chicken. Then place a tomato on top and sprinkle on some fresh basil. Talk about a good and satisfying meal!
4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

6 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/4-inch slices, halved, and patted dry
