  • 3 heirloom tomatoes sliced
  • 16oz fresh mozzarella sliced
  • 1 tbsp red pepper flakes
  • Salt + pepper
  • 2 tbsp good olive oil
  • Store-bought balsamic glaze
  • 1 bunch fresh basil


  1. Begin by slicing both your tomatoes and cheese in thin slices that are about ½”-1”thick.
  2. On a large dish, alternate the tomatoes and cheese until you’ve used them all up.
  3. Give the fresh tomatoes and cheese a good drizzle of olive oil and then season them with red pepper flakes and salt/pepper.
  4. Drizzle entire dish with balsamic glaze.
  5. Garnish with the basil by tearing or leaving the basil leaves whole. If you have fresh oregano on hand, this goes perfect with the salad as well.
  6. East fresh or store covered in the fridge for 1-2 days.
