This is an old favorite---of most everyone! Plus, it's so easy to make as little or as much as you need. Buy your tomatoes a little early, place them in a paper bag with an apple for 1-2 days, and they'll be riper and taste better. Just watch them so they don't get mooshy.
Serves: 4
Prep. Time: 15-20 minutes
4 large Lettuce leaves
2 large Ripe Tomatoes -- thickly sliced
2 medium Vidalia Onions, or other sweet onions -- thickly sliced
1 pound Mozzarella Cheese -- thickly sliced
16 leaves fresh Basil
Your favorite Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
On four individual salad plates, place one large lettuce leaf each. Then alternate 2 slices tomato, 2 slices onion and 2 slices cheese on each plate. Stick 4 basil leaves each between slices. Pour drressing over all and serve immediately.
