A super summer salad it really showcases great tomatoes. Use as fresh ingredients as you can farm stand tomatoes, fresh mozzarella. Add an ear of corn and some good country bread and it's a perfect summer dinner!

In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Slice tomatoes into thick slices. (If you're using plum tomatoes, cut wedges; if you're using cherry tomatoes, cut them in half.) Slice mozzarella into thick slices.

On a fancy platter, arrange the tomatoes and cheese in an alternating pattern. Stir dressing to combine again, then drizzle dressing over tomatoes. Sprinkle with shredded fresh basil leaves.
