Heirloom Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

with Basil Oil Drizzle & Anchovies
Serves 4


1 cup fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic
½ cup plus extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Squeeze of lemon (optional)
6-8 tomatoes, sliced or wedged
6-8 pieces fresh mozzarella cheese (equivalent to the tomato size)
10-12 anchovies, whole of halved
Maldon sea salt


In a blender, combine basil leaves, garlic, oil and salt and blend until a very smooth oil exists. Squeeze some lemon in it if desired and either strain through a fine mesh sieve or leave with bits of basil; this is a preference issue only. Set aside. On a large plat arrange tomatoes and mozzarella in an artistic design. Place a few anchovies around the plate as well and season with some Maldon salt. Drizzle the basil oil over the plated tomatoes and mozzarella.
