Caprese Salad

This is one of my favorites in the summertime. I read an article about Capri once that said this salad is traditionally made with a little lemon zest (lemons are everywhere on Capri), so that's how I always do it now, and it adds just the right touch. Easy and delicious.

Tomatoes, sliced
Fresh mozzarella, sliced
fresh basil, rolled up and then sliced into thin strips
lemon zest
olive oil
salt and pepper

Arrange tomato and mozzarella slices, alternating them and building a spiral, or placing mozzarella on top of tomato. Sprinkle basil over, then lemon zest over all. Add salt and pepper. Chill while you grill the meat or whatever. Drizzle olive oil on top just before serving.
