When it comes to summer tomatoes, there's no easier way to eat them then by pairing them with two simple ingredients: mozzarella, basil. It also helps if you have a top-quality extra-virgin olive oil.

Caprese salad, native to Italy's Campania region, is so perfect because it's so versatile: You can use the same ingredients in a cold sandwich or a grilled panini, to top a fresh pizza dough or on small skewers as bite-sized appetizers. Or you can just eat them as they are, with flavorful olive oil and fresh bread on the side (this is, after all, an Italian dish).
