  • Arrange tomatoes, onions and basil on platter; sprinkle with cheese.
  • Drizzle with dressing.
  • Serve immediately.

Storage Know-How

Place two or three layers of paper towels in large resealable plastic bag. Place short-stemmed fresh herbs, such as sage, basil or thyme, in bag; seal bag. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Purchasing Fresh Tomatoes

Ripe tomatoes should be firm and free of any soft spots, bruises or signs of mold. They should have bright shiny skins, feel heavy for their size and boast a lovely fresh tomato fragrance.

Storing Tomatoes

Vine-ripened tomatoes are very perishable. And since they tend to lose flavor when stored in the refrigerator, store them stem-sides down, at room temperature away from direct sunlight and use within a few days after purchase.

I think the major changes needed here, are to use "balsamic" vinegar and heirloom tomatoes, also, mozarella balls (available in containers) sliced up, buffalo mozarella is the best, but expensive, so regular will suffice. I also like to ad about a tsp. of minced garlic whisked into the vinegar, and then salt and pepper overall at the serving. Let me know how you like MY version ok? Its authentic Italian!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For "authentic Italian" you would not use vinegar, as the tomatoes are acid enough. For "authentic Italian" you would not use vinegar, as the tomatoes are acid enough. Using only good olive oil allows all the delicate flavors to shine through. After layering the recipe ingredients, I sprinkle generously with minced garlic, a bit of oregano, and salt/pepper; then pour over the olive oil. Favoloso!
