Caprese Salad

This is such a great salad. It looks pretty, it's hard to mess up, and it tastes great too! If you order it in a restaurant t is usually drizzled with olive oil, but I have a delicious balsamic that I had to sneak in. Enjoy!
3 vine ripe tomatoes, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
1 lb fresh mozzarella, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
1 bunch fresh basil
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Aged balsamic vinegar, for drizzling (I use a 25 year)
Salt and pepper

Layer alternating slices of tomatoes and mozzarella, adding a basil leaf between each on a large serving dish. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
