Tomato slices are an underrated garnish. Simple, flavorful and elegant, they can dress up any plate by their mere placement. Add a bit of flair by topping them with fresh basil leaves and this garnish will taste as good as it looks.

If you'd like to blur the garnish/salad lines, layer the tomato slices and basil leaves with slices of fresh mozzarella. The arrangement of colors is stunning, and when the accoutrement is layered with precision, it adds a professional elegance. To add yet another level of flavor, mix crushed red pepper and garlic into extra virgin olive oil and drizzle the whole affair. Delish!
