    Always a classic combination, this recipe is simple and delish! I always make sure i use the best olive oil, and red ripe tomatoes. i like a little black pepper and coarse sea salt, too  -  20 Aug 2012


    With a friends homegrown tomatoes and fresh mozzarella this is an almost-gourmet treat that you can make in 2 minutes:-)  -  11 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
