Tomato Salad

Tomatoes are one of my favorite things, especially home grown. There is nothing like them!
Here's a simple yet elegant way to enjoy them.

1 large tomato
6 fresh basil leaves
Shaved Parmesan cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Slice the tomato. Sprinkle fresh basil* and parmesan cheese over top. Mix the oil and vinegar together and drizzle over the top. You'll want about 3 parts Olive Oil to 1 part Vinegar. I mix them together before topping the salad.

*Tip for slicing basil. Lay your basil leaves on top of each other, then roll them up and carefully slice.
