Tomato with Mozzarella

Recently, the weather had been awful. I needed some food that would remind me that summer is not over yet. Sunshine in a plate. Tomato with mozzarella certainly is a classic dish. But to me, it can be either plain and boring or very delicious. What make the difference are the ingredients you use. Good quality tasty ingredients will for sure make a good dish. I’m always amazed of all the varieties of tomatoes you can find, the different shapes, tastes and colours. If you can get hold of different types of tomatoes for this recipe, this really is ideal. Now sunshine is back; it feels much better :)
