This tomato, olive and Mozzarella salad, dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, makes a delicious starter on its own.

  1. Using a sharp knife, cut the tomatoes into thin slices.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the Mozzarella into slices.
  3. Pit the olives and slice them into  rings.
  4. Layer the tomato, Mozzarella cheese and olives in a stack, finishing with a layer of cheese on top.
  5. Place each stack under a preheated hot grill (broiler) for 2-3 minutes or just long enough to melt the Mozzarella.
  6. Drizzle over the vinegar and olive oil, and season to taste with a little salt and pepper.
  7. Transfer to serving plates and garnish with basil leaves.
  8. Serve immediately.

COOK'S TIP

Buffalo Mozzarella cheese, although it is usually more expensive because of the comparative rarity of buffalo, does have a better flavour than the cow's milk variety. It is popular in salads, but also provides a tangy layer in baked dishes.
