  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1/2 ball hand-pulled mozzarella, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 pinch sea salt, to taste

  3. Slice the mozzarella and basil leaves into small pieces and dot with olive oil.
  4. Arrange vegetables on plates, tuck mozzarella and basil leaves in among them, and shake a bit of red pepper flakes over each plate.
