    Sounds really interesting and very tasty, I'm going to try it ;)

    In Italy they have a salad dish called "Insalata Caprese" which consists of layering on a platter a Tomato slice, a Mozzarella slice and a Basil leaf and so on... Google it for images, it's really simple and it's found all over the place. Many people have that with a bread roll for lunch drizzling it with olive oil and salt. There are some slight variations too, but that's the basics. Very plain, not as tasty as yours must be! ^_^

    Definitely must try that sauce - we love tomatoes with basil and mozz and balamic. This sounds like a great flavor blast...thanks!
