INGREDIENTS (for each serving)
3 thick slices of ripe tomato
1 slice onion (white or sweet onion)
2 thick slices fresh buffalo mozzarella
drizzle of olive oil
1 Tablespoon smooth pesto (it should be liquid enough to drizzle)
several grinds of coarse black pepper
2 or 3 fresh basil leaves

On a salad plate, arrange tomato, onion and cheese, starting and ending with tomato.
Drizzle with olive oil and pesto. Top with pepper and basil.
Serve at room temperature.

Make a tower on a bare plate or fan the ingredients out on a large piece of green leaf lettuce.
NOTE: The tomato needs to be ripe, but still firm.
If the slices are really watery, lay them on a paper towel to absorb any extra juices before plating.
