Caprese Salad- Paleo Style

This light,
easy-to-make summer salad, is a variation of the traditional one, which would
call for fresh Mozzarella.  
Using fresh, in-season and local Heirloom Tomato and Basil makes up for,
and then some, any flavors one might miss!  Choose your tomatoes based on their smell- one that imparts
that lovely garden scent is sure to taste just as good.

* Note- this is one
recipe in which one might not want to make extra; refrigerating tomatoes tends
to make them quite mushy and unappealing.
