Tomato, Basil & Mozzarella

Let me share with you my top five favorite tastes:
-Mushrooms
-Tomatoes
-Ranch
-Cheese
-Chocolate
Obviously these are never served together, but a combination of a few of them can be quite delish.
Like tomatoes & cheese
Especially when the tomatoes and fresh and have tons of flavor 
and when you're in Wisconsin, the cheese is usually from local farms 
:) 
And when it involves using part of your fresh herb garden in the mix
It's a winner!
My idea was to make this into a pizza.
And I still will
Just not now
But I promise when I do
You'll know about it!
Personally, I love recipes that can be altered super easily.
If you're not a huge fan of a ton of cheese or a large quantity of tomatoes just isn't your thing
Then cut back or amp up the basil
 or add some balsamic.. 
options ore endless
Or 
you can even slice a tomato add the sliced mozzarella and top with a basil leaf 
the presentation would be great!
Or put it on a tooth pick using grape tomatoes to make a mini ka bob
and serve it at a get together
Or, 
okay I'll stop
Here's my version!
 Chopped Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Salad

8oz fresh mozzarella, chopped into bite sized pieces
4 medium red tomatoes
10 basil leaves (to taste)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
Mix and serve!
