Ingredients

4
medium tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices

2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2
tablespoons balsamic or red wine vinegar
2
tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
Freshly ground pepper

Tips  

Ripe tomatoes at their peak of flavor are essential to this simple but satisfying combination. Those mealy, weak-colored tomatoes just won't do, thank you. Serve with breadsticks and a nice medium- to light-bodied red wine.
