Tomato Salad / Mediterranean Tomato Platter

Here's a very simple and quick way to enjoy some fresh tomatoes.

Lay out serving platter and crush fresh salt, (or sprinkle) kosher salt lightly onto the platter.
Drizzle olive oil lightly over the salt.
Sprinkle with freshly minced or dried basil.
Slice tomatoes into 1/4 inch slices and arrange onto platter.

Once again, lightly salt. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with basil. Top with freshly ground black pepper.

Variation - add mozarella cheese cubes.
Variation - coarsely chop tomatoes and cube 1/2 c. mozarella cheese. Toss all ingredients and serve as a salad.
