In Italy, where this salad is known as insalata caprese (salad in the style of the island of Capri), creamy fresh mozzarella and juicy, sun-ripened tomatoes find their way into many dishes, though none as perfect as this simple salad. This is a classic summertime dish, so don't even consider making it with out-of-season tomatoes or plastic-sheathed mozzarella. For this recipe, it is essential to use best-quality ripe tomatoes. If you can get them in season, try different heirloom varieties such as Green Zebra or Brandywine. You can also halve and scatter a handful of sweet cherry or grape tomatoes over the sliced tomatoes and mozzarella before drizzling with olive oil.
