Heirloom Tomato Salad

It is difficult to improve on this classic combination. Balance the tang of flavorful heirloom tomatoes—garnered fresh from the garden, farmers' market or produce aisle—with creamy fresh mozzarella in pearl-size form. Toss in aromatic basil leaves and a good balsamic vinegar and you've captured the essence of summer.
