Vacation Call-Off Caprese Salad

It's time that the loudest critics of the President's jobs numbers ought to be voting for bills to create jobs that improve American infrastructure and extend the middle-income tax cuts.

Vacation Call-Off Caprese Salad

This simple salad is perfect after a hard day's work.

3 balls (4 oz. each) fresh mozzarella
4 ripe tomatoes, sliced 3/8" thick (6 slices/tomato)
24 fresh basil leaves
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt and pepper

Slice each mozzarella ball into 8 slices.

Arrange cheese, tomatoes and basil leaves on platter.  

Whisk together remaining ingredients; drizzle over salad.  Sprinkle with additional ground pepper, if desired.

Add 2 oranges, peeled, halved and sliced, to salad for a sweet addition.
